Very well kept but tiny! We paid £24 for a family of 4 (including the mullet feeding) but we could have been in and out within 5 minutes! I know tourist attractions can be expensive but I’ve seen more fish at my local garden centre!...More

A great way to spend your time, whatever the weather. Staff were extremely lovely and friendly. A large selection of marine life, with a unique twist. Very impressed

Small aquarium with a reasonable selection of sea creatures but not value for money and had to pay an extra £3 per person to hand feed the Mullet which was excessive to say the least!!!

The whole experience from start to finish was awesome. Max was incredibly helpful and friendly. Talking us through how to pay without cash on the website. Highly recommended for making grumpy teenagers laugh by hands on feeding fish. Will be telling everyone.

There is a great range of well looked after native fish and crustaceans. The owner was very knowledgeable and enthuastic. I held a starfish and fed the mullets for £3. Definitely worth a visit.
