Thank you for your kind review of our aquarium. Our focus on mainly native species plus interaction with the rays sets us apart from nearly all other UK aquariums regardless of size. You're right, our building is not of the standout variety, but of course...More

Maryport is a very interesting town, with its roman history and maritime heritage. The harbour area, where much regeneration has taken place in recent years, is well worth exploring. One of the attractions is the aquarium, an excellent venue for the visitor and not just...More

Hi,regarding dogs in the aquarium regretfully only guide dogs are permitted. This is simply because the display area is fairly enclosed in places and the combination of potentially large excited dogs + other visitors, some with great fear of dogs is an unworkable combination. We do have regulars who come with dogs, they either take it in turns to go round or if it's fine they sit with their dogs on our patio area outside the Café which has picnic benches, water containers for dogs and is fairly sheltered. Thanks for your interest in visiting us.
