A small aquarium

This a very small and simple aquarium and will kill 30-40 mins. It's a shame more of the tanks/displays didn't have more information. Don't expect too much and you'll be fine.

Located in a tunnel complex I found indeed some aquaria and some poor fish. Some aquaria had not a single fish and those who had were either unlabeled or carried the wrong information. The larger part of this "attraction" was a shop where one can buy food for fishes or fishes for the aquarium. The exhibits were a pure shame.

Emergency rainy-day activity to keep the kids happy. We spent £15.50 for a family ticket and were quite disappointed. Many of the fish were unimpressive and most of the display signs giving details about the fish were either missing or the lights behind them broken so you couldn't read them. This could be a lovely aquarium but as many of... More

There are many different varieties of fish and sea creatures to look at and learn about. They range from fish which live in the local waters to across the world. You can even see one of the world oldest and largest lobsters! Well worth a visit, plus beautiful views across the Channel Islands.

We saw the aquarium when we went on the Little Train ride and thought it would be a good idea to visit. Turns out it wasn't really a good idea. A lot of the tanks were empty, most of the ones that had fish didn't have the correct signs beside them. Won't be going again.

This is quite a small aquarium set in a hillside tunnel. It cost £4.50 per adult to enter and it was nice enough, but nothing spectacular.

If you're expecting a wide variety of exotic sea creatures you may be disappointed... A lot of the tanks were empty and there wasn't that much to see in the ones that were occupied. Something to do with the kids if it's raining but don't expect it to take that long.

Very little to occupy you more than half an hour here and not worth the money. Tank exhibits are mis-labelled or unlabelled as often as not. In sore need of an overhaul but I don't suppose it makes enough money.

Used to come here on school excursions as a child. Thought it may have changed, but it hasn't. Some of it was closed (not good for summer peak time). The chain smoking lady on the front counter was not very warm and friendly. One of the fish was eating another fish, which was horrible. There is so much potential here,... More

The aquarium although having a number of interesting exhibits this attraction is in great need of modification.
