Had a really nice time seeing and learning about a wide range of sea creatures. I suspect people who have reviewed it as poor value for money may have been the people who just looked at tanks for 5 seconds and moved on. Would highly recommend if your interested in fish and wildlife, you can spend ages looking at and reading about all the different varieties.

We've been to lots of aquariums and this is the smallest, most run down we've seen. It would be value for money if half the price.

Dear Liz W,

Thank you for your review. It is a shame you did not speak to a member of the team on the day about your concerns as we don't have much detail in this review to address them.

We are a small seaside aquarium but we have hundreds of marine species as well as an extensive reptile collection. We also offer the all day pass allowing guests to come in and out all day and enjoy the talks and feeds taking place every hour.

Our online booking system allows guests to make great savings online if they choose.

Many thanks

We enjoyed our visit to this aquarium when we visited Eastbourne. Lots to see, and we enjoyed one of the educational talks where the Blue Reef helper allowed people to hold or stroke a corn snake. This was my first ever experience of being up close and personal with a snake, not slimy at all!
To sum up, a lovely place to visit, for young and ... not so young alike!

Had a lovely visit today....lots of things to see and do.
Bit crowded in places, but we enjoyed it.
You get your hand stamped when you first arrive so you can return throughout the day.
