If you want to spend half an hour listening to how electricity prices are closing them down, how council haven’t supported them, how the landlord is hopeless and look at fish that are living in pretty average conditions then come here. Tour guide complains that...More

As another reviewer has said, don't let looks put you off. Yes this is a small aquarium - privately owned and run with no big tourists dollars or backing, but the experience is intimate and personable especially suiting to young families. My children aged 6,...More

Not a huge aquarium but had lots of different things to see. Highlight for us was patting the sharks that look like stingrays (can't remember their proper name!!!!) but they were gorgeous all the same.

Our young family loved visiting the Sealife Centre. The owner was very passionate and knowledgeable about her animals and her enthusiasm was contagious! We chose to stay and feed the fish which was a unique hands on experience that the kids especially loved.
