Cost around £5 and I would not have wanted to pay anymore. It is a nice place to while away a rainy hour or two and the seats throughout the viewing areas are good. However, a lot of the tanks didn't seem to contain the fish that the information stated that they did. The lights weren't working in some of... More

Okay for families with smaller children. They will be interested in the fishes and sea creatures. Teens might not find it so interesting though - depends how keen you are on fish

My wife & i are annual visitors to Guernsey and re-visit most of the attractions every time (we've never missed the noon-day gun at Castle Cornet) but we give the Aquarium a miss as it is not really value for money. Even our children were disappointed (but they loved the underground museum close-by)

Go when it is warm as the tunnel is a bit damp. The fish are fascinating, with wonderful colours. Worth taking visitors to see

I have visited here from time to time with the grandchildren and they love seeing the different sea creatures which made them want an aquarium with some fish. The Aquarium has a good selection of fish to buy and are always happy to offer advice.

This really isn't worth your money!! Theres hardly anything in there and it smells absolutely awful! You are better of seeing fish in a general shop.

One wishes there was an extra half a star to give this one. There is lots to see and what is there is well worth seeing but it lacks anything to really capture the imagination. One has seen the same types of things done better elsewhere. It is the sort of place one is glad to have on a wet... More

The aquarium is in desperate need of some tlc.. Most of the tanks were very dirty and some had dead fish in them.. I had to leave as found it quite upsetting to see some fish crammed into tanks that were too small... Definitely not a place that's worth a visit.. It will be an hour of your life that... More

The aquarium is well situated in a granite cliff South of town, with parking directly outside. We went here as a small family group and found it dreary and somewhat sparse. It may appeal to those with younger children. It has a shop attached, and, although entry isn't terribly expensive, there are attractions which present better value for money. There... More
