I'm so pleased we made the long distance journey to visit here. We were staying approx 1.5hrs away from here and looking for something to do on a wet and windy day. Perfect place for kids and adults alike. The building itself is unusual from outside and striking looms over the other buildings as you approach it. Easy to find car parking, although we were the 2nd time slot in the day so perhaps more difficult later in the day. Super easy queueing system and covid reminders everywhere, although noone was social distancing really by the tanks. Discount for carers attending with disabled and we were informed after we'd queued with everyone else that in future to use the other door to go to the front if the queue/accessible entrance. Such a good price that you can return within the year with the same tickets. Exhibits are brilliant! The whole aquarium is atmospheric, lots of information boards, interesting facts, interactive things for the kids and of course plenty of fish to see. Don't think you could spend a whole day here but half a day is great ans we were all enthralled from the moment we walked in. Cannot wait to go again

If you purchase a ticket you can return free for 12 months. A really great place. Penguins a highlight for sure but so much great fish to see. Really interesting and suitable for all ages. Adapting to COVID well too.

I took my girlfriend here for our third anniversary after a lot of thinking. This was definitely the right choice, we both loved it. We're both huge lovers of animals and I'm a former animal student myself. The tickets were surprisingly cheap and last the entire year! I paid about £13 each, so £26. Amazing exhibits and great viewing areas that allow you to clearly see absolutely everything. I enjoyed the little things you could do as you were walking around that were both fun and educational. The Amazon Rainforest part really made me happy because of the messages about conservation that informs both adults and kids on a huge problem. The only disappointing thing was the Bubble Lift, an elevator at the end of the exhibition to take you to the cafe/shop/exit. It *was* good, but it wasn't an 'underwater elevator' like I expected from the site. It has a see-through side that goes past the main tank for a few seconds, but it was still cool. Hand-sanitizer, staff on lookout and signs on the floors/walls to keep apart etc were all in place. You could also buy a Deep mask there if you wanted, but it's pretty expensive.

Loved it here so nice to get out the house and do something “normal” Was ok re social distancing as I saw previous reviews so was a bit apprehensive. However apart from a couple of occasions (first pool) and the digi ocean distancing was fine. Distinct lack of cleaning touch screen bits. They could do with some form of wipe next to them so you cannwipe before /after use Obviously not all open but they have managed to get a large amount open fully.

My partner and I visited the Deep this weekend and it’s definitely one of the best aquariums we’ve been to in the UK. They have such a wide variety of marine life from the teeny tiny up to the massive and a lot of thought has gone into how best to showcase them. We were really impressed with the sheer size of the main tank and the way they’ve created some great viewing points so you can see into the tank from so many different angles; above it, below it, you can walk through it - it’s so much more interactive than some others we’ve visited. Covid wise everything felt very safe. You book a time slot for arrival, masks are mandatory as soon as you enter the premises and they have hand sanitizer throughout. As a result of covid they aren’t currently doing any feeding demonstrations and the touch pool is closed so the overall visit was a bit shorter than usual but we’ll make sure to go back again when things are “back to normal”. The only downside we felt was the penguin enclosure- in comparison to the other habitats it felt a bit like a poor relation. At the moment it has a bit of a treasure-island theme going on so the whole enclosure looked quite plastic and basic. It would be great to see it upgraded to be on par with the rest; we’d love to see the penguins have more room to swim and things to interact with! Finally, a quick tip - we wanted some food after we’d finished our visit but ideally wanted to avoid driving into town and finding somewhere else to park. We found a great quirky cafe just across the bridge (5 mins walk max) called ‘Nibble’ which we’d definitely recommend!
