We enjoyed our visit here, and having been to ones in the UK, found this one extremely packed with lots of different fish etc.. Its not huge but well worth a visit.

We spent about an hour walking around. It's not massive but had a lot to look at. We booked only before we went so the price was reasonable and included Mini Golf on the roof which was lots of fun. The little cafe was fairly priced too and the staff were very helpful and knowledgable about the species and exhibits.

We enjoyed sea life it was quiet small and mini golf only had 9 holes but it is worth a look and I think young kids would enjoy it there is a little cafe also inside

Thank you for your feedback. We welcome constructive criticism and always endeavour to learn from our guests' comments and make improvements where possible. We are sorry you felt the Sea Life centre was too small and the visit too short, but happily this perception is the exception rather than the rule. Yes, the attraction is compact by comparison with some,... More

Fun day in the aquarium, beautiful place. Mini golf included. Nice day out with a great gift shop. Smaller than expected but not disappointing.

A wide variety of sea life, educative and informative. A lot of nice restaurants all around, great view of the sea with opportunities for organised mini cruises - reasonably priced also! A great place to bring the children to. Also a mini golf facility along side the aquarium.
