This is an exceptional aquarium run by the very charming gentleman called Max. You can feed the fish and see all the local Marine life, it’s definitely a must if your visiting Lyme.

Old world cottage building on the Cobb with a fascinating aquarium full of local sea life. Hand feeding the mullet was great fun. We always drop in as part of our day tripe to Lyme.

my wife daughter and grandchild found this a fascinating visit and my science teacher wife was very impressed with the expertise of the staff who went the extra mile to make this a very worth while visit. The mullet and starfish will never be forgotten.

Great local Aquarium and well worth a visit. Hand feeding of the fish was amazing and the knowledge of the vendors was brilliant. Highly recommendable.
