Only visited sea life centres previously so coming to a different aquarium was well worth it. Superb venue on the seafront/marina. Loads of exhibitions/tanks showcasing lots of animals and environments. Lots of guides stationed at each tank giving talks and answering questions. Brilliant day out

Amazing, huge tanks full of sea creatures. I could have sat and watched all day. (Some areas have chairs so you can!).

As a local we often visit the aquarium. The displays are great and the level of information is just right. I especially like the display of underwater photos. They should expand and update these. Well worth a visit.
