Shortest pier and a short visit

Live locally and only been once. Seems to cost the same as the bigger ones but didn't take long to go around, though it has been a couple of years

I had read the poor reviews on tripadvisor but was having a good day in Weston Super Mare having spent a couple of hours on the pier decided to walk down the promenade and check it out. Arrived outside and the signage looked good. My wife, I and 12 year old daughter, £26 to get in. Very hard sell on... More

First of all this place is way too overpriced. It costs £9.50 for adults and £7.50 for children. The experience lasts around 20 minutes if you don't take part in any activities. It's run down and in desperate need of renovation. The activities happen throughout the day in hourly intervals. This is basically the implored method of justifying the high... More

Disappointed that this was so overpriced at £9.95 each and it was tired inside. Could of done with a good clean, interesting to go under the see through chamber but other than that pretty boring. Takes you about ten mins to walk through out into a gift shop again overpriced.

Kids badgered us to go back to the SeaQuarium, which we were a little reluctant to do as it was expensive for not very much! It hasn't changed and we shan't be taking them back again.

SeaQuarium is a mediocre aquarium, just a breath away from being a pet shop or garden centre.The website describes it as having "10 different zones" with "over 30 exhibits" but that makes the place seem much larger than it is. I can only assume they class each small tank as an "exhibit". For £9.50 a ticket (standard adult) I'd expect... More

Perfectly nice little aquarium, a little run down and shabby, but staff are friendly and fish look healthy. However it was freezing inside, literally colder than it was outside. We found a child goes free voucher so for 2 adults and a child we paid just under £20 which I felt was way too much considering we were done in... More

I visited here with my family on a quiet Sunday morning in December. Despite its slightly run down appearance from the outside there is surprisingly a lot to do inside and a lovely café overlooking the beach. What really set it apart was the interactive feeding session by the friendly and helpful staff which my boys loved and the staff... More

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.
