A fantastic place to take the kids whether teens or littles. We had a fab couple hrs wandering around and checking out all the tanks. Even better we can go for free for a whole year. Great value for money and fantastic experiences for many.

Great place to spend the afternoon with friends or family. Amazing animals and there is a lift that gives fantastic experience of what it is like to be underneath the water with sharks! Definitely worth visiting!

There are stairs available, but the lift is brilliant and enhances your trip and I get vertigo badly and petrified of heights, but I can easily handle the lift!
