Worth a visit on a rainy day. My family and I enjoyed following the trail of questions and working out the answers. It is a small place and we were done within an hour but thankfully we did have some money off vouchers.

We have just arrived back at our hotel in Weston following the Seaquarium torch tour. This was so much more than we expected. Included in the really reasonable price was tea, coffee or hot chocolate, chocolate cake, prizes and a loot bag each. The guide was fantastic.. really entertaining and funny. The staff were all in character for Halloween and... More

It's around £9 to get and in not 100% sure that's good value of money. What attracted us to go with my brother and young nephew was the advertisement of a Halloween special. The place was filled with Halloween decor and the staff were dressed up however there was no Halloween ambience. I think also that we were the only... More

Well worth a visit. The café is good, the view across the bay is excellent, the staff friendly and most of all the aquarium is excellent.

I found this smallish collection of sea creatures & fish interesting and informative - maybe more suited to children than an "expert" eye. Staff friendly and happy to answer questions. Can re-visit during 48hrs to catch the "feeding times". bit expensive but I would recommend the cafe which is very good With sea views all around.

This place is awesome, I could have stayed there all day, the staff were so nice with all there information and care towards the fish, it's a very well run place and the variety of fish is great, the other bonus is you can use your ticket all day so you can come back for feeding time, brilliant.

Visited in October. Reasonable value for money although no discount for Carer, we used a money off coupon which made it more affordable. Some interesting exhibits although would have been nice for a staff member to be giving talks tec on the different fish etc

We try to visit aquariums wherever we go as my daughter and I both love looking at fish. This is a small old aquarium on a fantastic position atop the seafront, however it is looking a bit tired, the tanks are discoloured and signs showing the main ocean tank is leaking are a little unnerving when you can hear it...

Good for kids although it's. Lot of money for a family when you can see all fish in about 10 minutes and then spend another 10/20 pounds in the gift shop! But a good treat for the little ones

I really did not want to visit the aquarium, as ones I have been to before I have found very hot and stuffy and to be quite honest boring.So when my husband suggested it would be good to go round it I wasn't too impressed with the idea.We entered through the gift shop into one of the areas of tanks...
