Pumpkin the Octopus is brilliant and loved by everyone. he is just not very good at predicting world cup results! we are investing heavily on refurbishing the auditorium this winter so come back next year and see the transformation.

Really glad we went in had a look. They have made it look so pretty inside and the fish are well looked after...love the jelly fish. Worth a visit if you like fish and old buildings

I went with my boyfriend and we spent about three-four hours here. There’s loads to keep kids entertained if you have them, and there’s a cafe for drinks and stuff inside too.
