Hi Susannah, interesting that the oldest aquarium in the world has seen better days! We have spent nearly £6m in restoration over the past 5 years so I am afraid I can't agree.

The price was £85 for Two Adults and Three children, then they try to sell you books etc. The glass bottom boat is also extra, I would allow about £17 per person.
