This is worth a quick visit It’s Free, but it is asked to donate. And we had 5 children, 5 and under and they were all entertained. So if you are walking round the harbour, go in, have a look and enjoy.

True to it’s word it’s a very small aquarium nevertheless was worth the 10 minute walk through and to make a donation to make sure the building is kept in good repair and use.

The aquarium, although small, contains several large tanks holding a good variety of fish, crabs, lobsters etc. We enjoyed our visit and I think it would be an interesting place to take children.

Our granddaughter would have loved to see the fish at such close quarters. Not a big, museum, but a pleasant half hour. If the weather has been wet, we'd have probably stayed longer.

This is a lovely little aquarium, housed in the old lifeboat station. The fish are local to the area and all look in good condition, although some of them seemed too big for the accommodation. A wide variety of crabs and other spiny critters -...More

Hello, I know it is open from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm most days, but that may begin from the beginning of April. Sorry I cannot be of any more help as I live in Bristol and have only visited myself.
