I really didn't like this attraction at all.....it was very outdated when it comes to animal welfare. The tanks were tiny and dirty and one fish clearly wasn't happy, swimming somersaults. It was dark in there and there wasn't enough room for the sting rays...More

We had been told that there was enough for an hour and that it was free. Neither are true! 😠 It was £10 and after 10 minutes my family had enjoyed themselves but wanted to go. So we went to the beach and enjoyed watching...More

We visited as bought a ticket for all four attractions on site. The little aquarium is perfect for little ones, very informative.

We have visited a couple of times now, along with the dog, who was very spoilt by the attendant on the til! Thank you :o) It is quite small and dark BUT it is fascinating to see the creatures living in the seas around us....More
