This is small but a really good place to go especially with small children. It is free and they enjoyed being able to see the fish very well. You give a donation and I think it is worth it to keep things like this going.

Hello, I know it is open from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm most days, but that may begin from the beginning of April. Sorry I cannot be of any more help as I live in Bristol and have only visited myself.
