“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Mavalous place only stayed there about 1 hour where else can you see such beauty but after that a walk around the harbour side was a fantastic day if your taking the kids take a picnic as the food can be expensive there's plenty to see and do

“Really enjoyed ourselves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

First time visit for me really enjoyed the exhibits. The children also seemed to be entertained. Not only fish to see but frogs,turtles,sea horses etc. lots of interactive things for the children. Watched the octopus being fed and heard a commentary on octopus' worth staying to see.
Did feel it was expensive especially for children as only takes about an hour to see everything.
Worth a visit if visiting Bristol.

“A disappointing experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

I was quite unsatisfied with my visit to the aquarium. The attractions were few, the variety of animals is poor and you can get around the entire site in about 45 mins. I really think what they advertise is way more than what you get. The souvenir shop also lacked variety and quality products. They key chain that I did get has already broken. I did speak to memeber of staff suggesting that they try to vary their souvenirs. In terms of price I paid concession price but I honestly still do not think it was worth it.

Final opinion: unless you live in Bristol it's not worth going out of your way to visit here like I did.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Took my grandchildren here on a trip out and despite the worrying amount of time an old lady would have to walk we all had a pleasant trip. it is a tad overpriced for my modest budget but my grandchildren had a wonderful time and that is all that matters.

“Too pricy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Interesting only for kids and a little bit to pricy for what you see. £13 for an adult it's too much for what is offering!
