The aquarium is a wonderful little place. My 2 children (5 and 10) both loved being able to feed the fish and hold a real starfish. Really lovely people and really helpful and informative. Definitely a return visit is required.

My family enjoyed the visit and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Feeding the mullets was especially good fun. My review would be an easy 5 stars but for the expense - it cost the four of us £21 plus £3 for mullet food. Such a lot for what was a 20 minute visit.

Paid £21 for family of 4 to look at less fish than would be seen at our local garden centre. Nice owners but sorry dead fish in 3 of the tanks was really bad and you can see everything in 10 minutes. Really poor value for money.

A bit pricy for what it is but our daughter loves feeding the mullet and holding the starfish. Nice new display with an exciting video of a recent storm

Very friendly little marine Aquarium, very small, a little over priced for what it is, friendly staff, holding a starfish and hand feeding some mullet fish.

Absolutely wonderful little aquarium, my partner and I visited on Friday the 21st and loved hand feeding the mullet and holding the starfish, the guy was extremely helpful and polite. Would definitely return in the not so distant future, thank you for a fantastic visit.

OK its a fairly basic set up with limited displays of fish and other sea life. However, the feeding the mullet provided 20 minutes of fun and laughter alone and was the subject of conversation for the rest of the morning. Its a little pricey for what it is but you get a small discount on line but be warned... More
