What a fantastic little aquarium! Our kids (7&2) absolutely loved hand feeding the mullet, what a great experience for them! They had their picture taken with a 20 year old crab and even got to hold a starfish. It's not the biggest place but the interaction with the fish and the enthusiasm from the staff more than make up for... More

Took the grandchildren to see this seaside display and they really did enjoy themselves. They were able to hand feed the grey mullet and were absolutely enthralled by the experience. Every time that we subsequently passed the building they wanted to go in to feed the fish.

The staff are super friendly, and so enthusiastic about the place, more than willing to spend time taking to you about all the marine animals on display. Feeding the mullet is a weird thing to do (in a good way!), and well worth the extra few quid. Can't recommend this place enough - we've been to Lyme Regis on hols... More

This little aquarium is a delight. Great beasties to wonder over and, best of all, feeding the mullet by hand. So good we had to go back twice over one weekend. Highly recommended.

It was our first visit to Lyme Regis and we noticed there was a Marine Aquarium on the Cobb. As a family ( Two adults, one teenager and one seven year old) we love Aquariums so we made a visit. But this was no ordinary Aquarium. Here you can hand feed around 50 plus or so Mullet. It was definitely... More

Being welcomed by a genuinely enthusiastic owner and staff member made our visit all the more special. The experience of dunking our hands into a huge tank to feed a shoal of Mullet was truly fantastic and memorable. No unnecessary frills needed as it is in an old building on The Cobb which had a old stone walls and timbers.... More

We first purchased tickets via the website and saved some money on entry. When we arrived we were welcomed by a lovely girl who then proceeded to show us all how to hand feed the mullet fish and the experience was amazing. The kids absolutely loved it. The added bonus was holding a starfish and being able to get a... More
