I didn’t go in the aquarium as I didn’t have time but I visited the cafe and bought a fruit scone and cup of tea.
The scone was delicious, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.
You could tell they were freshly baked!...More
We had a great time at the aquarium on Saturday. Our boys (5 & 7) were totally engrossed! They loved getting hands on with the rays and looking at the baby lobsters in the lab. We stayed to watch two feeding sessions and the staff...More

Considered this an expensive experience for families on a budget. 2 adults and 2 children was £25 for access to the aquarium. Even more disappointing when some had walked straight in without any checks whether tickets had been purchased or not. Appreciate it was school...More

This place was really lovely to visit. It was lovely to have a wonder around and see the fish :).

Hi,regarding dogs in the aquarium regretfully only guide dogs are permitted. This is simply because the display area is fairly enclosed in places and the combination of potentially large excited dogs + other visitors, some with great fear of dogs is an unworkable combination. We do have regulars who come with dogs, they either take it in turns to go round or if it's fine they sit with their dogs on our patio area outside the Café which has picnic benches, water containers for dogs and is fairly sheltered. Thanks for your interest in visiting us.
