“Sad”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Damp, dank and dingy. I felt depressed for the animals in captivity, no room to move nor stimulation. The tortoise was particularly upsetting, pacing back and forth on a bit of dirty carpet. Very little information on display about the creatures within, dirty tanks and poor lighting.

“Guernsey Aquaruim”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Went with a family for a day out and must say its a nice fish shop not an Aquarium...there are nice species to look at, friendly staff but we felt that the place was over rated and it cost us £20 for 30 min the place it's self not that big either.its. It much nicer to walk around the coast. Be better for kids and lots of boats around to entertain children if they like marine.

If an entrance fee was free I would bring my child back again to look at the same fish but won't pay for it.

“Aquarium - but not too exciting!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Sorry - but if you want to go to an aquarium - you expect more than this!!Been there several times and unfortunately, never saw any improvement in either the exhibits nor the actual place - it really needs some money spent on the place in order to upgrade it and provide - the very few interesting exhibits - with a more appropriate tank to be stored in!!
Not really worth the entrance fee!!

Nice atmosphere in the tunnels, would have liked to have seen more fish and reptiles.

Nearest toilets at the Victorian Bathing Pools.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Went here at the beginning of March. It's basically a shop with a tired old aquarium in the back of it.

I left feeling sorry for the reptiles and large fish they have stored in it. All of which I think would be better off in larger tanks. Place seems in dire need of upgrade.
