Great day out, well planned and lovely kept venue. I felt a little pricey for a family, but did give half price access off of further visits or other venues.

Really enjoyed visiting the aquarium, packed with information about the animals & conservation. Great educational visit - even for adults !! Loved the huge tank & watching the sharks & rays, quite mesmerising.

Perfect family day out. Easily can spend hours there and they give you a year's pass for the admission. Staff are very friendly and the diver's wave and interact with the children too. So much to see and do too. A kids meal is less...More
