Price of admission is, as other reviews state, very high for the amount of entertainment you can get at Blue Planet. The shark tunnel is fantastic we actually went round a few times, my 3 year old was very impressed! You have basically seen the whole aquarium in a couple of hours which doesn't represent a full day out (which we hoped it would be given the price of admission). The cafe was ridiculously priced as well but what can you expect, all these types of attractions are usually the same. We actually intended to go to Chester Zoo but diverted to the Blue Planet due to the weather..... next time we will just wait for a dry day rather than settle for our second choice destination

This is one of the better aquariums. There is a great range of fish, a long shark tunnel and some added creepy crawlies towards the end. The staff are knowledgable and the talks are really informative.

Can't believe the negative reviews! What do people expect from an aquarium? Spent a couple of brilliant hours there? There aren't any fast rides or petting areas - it's an aquarium! Really enjoyed it. Learnt loads. Where else in Britain can you get so close to sharks and rays? Don't think you should have to pay extra for parking and the queue for a drink was ridiculous but otherwise excellent

Far too expensive admission prices for the time you can actually pass here. Within an hour you’re done! Desperate need of renovation and should cost a quarter of the price for what’s on offer.

I took my grandson here and I feel for the price to get in is just way to much compared to the experience you receive, it’s easily walkable within a hour , and that’s it a hour , then you mite Aswell walk around again seeing the exact same things to feel like you get a small amount out of the money you spend , just not enough here for the price it costs
