What a quaint place, full of amazing fish. Small but well worth the visit we really enjoyed watching the crabs and the blue lobsters. Would definitely visit again.

This was such a lovely place to view fish from our seas with a touching pool so you can pick up crabs and stroke starfish! An interesting place for all ages.

I got dragged in by my wife to help her entertain the kids while I was trying to save myself £4. I thought it was going to be terrible. So it’s the smallest aquarium I’ve ever been in but it’s so easy for young kids...More
