To be honest we only decided to go into the Oceanarium to escape the rain, but were so glad we did... read more

Interesting place but it’s rather small and could have been cheaper for the size of it. Worth a visit if you’re with kids.

This is not the biggedt aquarium we have been to, but it is certainly one of the best laid out ones we have been to.
The design is great and the whole thing us accessable to buggies and wheel chairs. The staff were friendly and helpfull and purchasing the tickets online and redeeming them was painless. I like the fact they have otters and penguins. Would definatley visit again next time we are in the area.

Went to the Oceanarium on a Sunday afternoon. The weather wasn’t great so perfect was to entertain the kids. They were really engaged and the staff seemed really passionate. Some of the interactive features were temperamental and some areas could do with a facelift (eg kids play area) given the cost of entry but overall a perfect way to get the kids learning and they were enjoying themselves.

It was a windy day and we spent a long time sheltering in here! It is fairly small and could have been done in under an hour really but we dragged it out quite a bit. Some interesting and diverse animals - not just fish!
