Small but fine for its location and carries some intriguing looking fishes. My children loved it. We had fun looking at the eels and lobsters etc. Not much to see and little pricey in regards to that but was well worth for for a family...More

This place is very small and there is not really a great deal to see, it is the kind of place you only really need to visit the once. You can complete the walk round in less than 5 minutes and for £3 per person...More

Absolute waste of money. Yes it's only 3 quid but if you had two or three children it would be expensive. Just loads of fish in mostly murky water. Oh some turtles as well. Walked round it in five minutes.

We spent approx 45 minutes. Small but majority of animals and habitats were well looked after, apart from one poorly ray. But the rest of the animals looked healthy. For £3 definitely worth a visit.

The seaquarium is a new project but well worth a visit for £3-00 per adult, with the added value of free re-visit all day. Plenty to look at and even a sand play-pit for the children. This is very popular with parents and children alike....More
