“Loved it! Brilliant!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

The most unassuming aquarium I've visited but 100 times better than the sealife centre in Hunstanton!

For a small entrance fee you can stumble into a wonderful aquatic adventure. Very quirky but we ended staying far longer than I'd anticipated.
Great for small children, ours were especially entranced by the blue lobsters and the flat fish.
The proprietor was very welcoming, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable.
One of the highlights to our visit to Cornwall, and will definitely go back when we're next down there.
Worth a visit even if simply to avoid rain.

“The best aquarium I've ever been to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

This is a small aquarium that is kept going through the perseverance of the proprietor. It only costs £2 to get in and they have only local fish, which are often returned to the wild and replaced with other fish of the same species: turbots, bass, dogfish,...

Gives a very good idea of the marine ecology of the area.

The manager was passionate about the museum.

Very Small and not the best way to see live fish. Not really worth the money, but great for kids.
