Phenomenal price for what it is. Never again. Should have listened to the reviews. Better to travel a little further. Sea life in Weymouth has similar admission prices and provides entertainment for the kids for a whole day.bthis place is a total waste of money.

Perfect for the kids, there is so much to see and do kept them amused for hours, highly recommend! A wide range of sea creatures reminded me of my scuba driving days.

Great place to come with friends and family. I think it's slightly overpriced but still a good place to visit. I especially like the section near the end with the turtles, rays and catfish.

Nice Place .But over priced for what it is. Best one to go to is Plymouth . something to do for a couple of hours in the rain.

The title says it all ... 'ok but overpriced'. Similar price to the SS Great Britain but nowhere near the value. Could have more exhibits, but I suppose restricted on space. Interesting chat and feeding on seahorses. Just too much money for not a lot....More

Visited here with wife and 2 year old daughter. Our daughter had a fantastic time looking at all the fishes. Was reasonable value, but only took an hour to get round it. Would have liked more for the price. It was a quite Friday morning...More

The children enjoyed seeing the range of sea life and reading the information. The cafe was ok. Gift shop expensive.

My two year old was entertained for hours. Bathrooms had changing tables, the place was gorgeous, and cappuccinos at the cafe inside were good.
