Oceanarium- The Bournemouth Aquarium, Bournemouth Reviews

  • Went here with my 11 month old. Have to use a carrier, as there is no room for strollers, and it is totally worth it. She had the best time looking at the fish and other sea life swim around the tanks. I think kids of all ages will love this wonderful place. Highly recommend that everyone that visits this part of England goes here.

  • Nice place to see all that sweet creatures of the sea. Also, to have a nice time with friends and family. To finished we been to the little cafe. We had a good experience around. All the stuff is nice and helpful. You need to go and see how the feed the animals.

  • Good experience! We fortunately turned up on a buy one get one free day! Great price well worth it. Facilities a little dated, the centre could do with a little better maintenance and update and love but the fish look well cared for and lots of information about the environment and saving our oceans.

  • Great place to visit for a few hours. It's small but my son loved it! Partnered with a trip to the beach was a lovely day out. Recommend eating at the cafe downstairs. Food is nice & reasonably priced if you get a meal deal!

  • Fun place for the entire family and I liked that they had a small play area for the kids. They had a great variety of fish but sometimes I found the tanks to be a bit small for the amount of fish held in them. They had a dark room where they found it appropriate to play "scary" music so my son got terrified and didn't want to look at anything in there but just leave. Don't quite understand the purpose of that music. But overall well worth a visit.
