fantastic day out with my 2 year old and one year old. My toddler loved all the sealife and they have a wonderful soft play at the end. We will use our tickets to come back.

Spent an enjoyable few hours here. Not too busy and very accessible with small people. Loved the big tank especially the turtle and saw-fish. Penguins were fun too. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Good value tickets which also allow return trips within a year.
