  • What a place to go to!! My kids loved it. I loved it. Lots of information so you can learn all about the different animals they have. Feeding times are brilliant. Listening to them talking about the turtles and sharks. Love the fact you can leave and come back all day. So a quick sneak off to the beach. Then back for the feedings. The yearly tickets are perfect. Makes it worth coming any day all year round. We will be back again soon!!

  • I love this aquarium even though we live in plymouth (where the national marine aquarium is) it is worth the trip. My son really enjoyed it too. Its not very big but the animals are amazing. The only thing is that the main pool needs to be updated as its showing signs of old age and damage, however i still enjoy it all the same. Staff are friendly and helpful.

  • I loved it, it was very educational and had a lot about the effects of climate change and how we could help. The penguin feeding was adorable and the person giving the talk was very knowledgeable. The deep sea bit was so exciting and so were the turtles! The only downside for me was that it said online there were seahorses but I couldn’t find them. There was pipefish though! And starfish too. I loved all the different areas like Africa, Florida keys etc. I would like to return when the India bit is back open. Great aquarium.

  • The staff here are absolutely great and went above and beyond to help us out when I made a mistake with the tickets and didn't make it seems like I did anything wrong at all. Amazing personalities, really seemed like they loved it there and wanted us to enjoy the day! The place itself was nice enough and the food is good there. The talks are definitely worth a watch.

  • Lovely time. Shame have to go to toilets next to get shop. Then kids don't want to look round anymore. Would be nice if there was a pool where kids could feel SAFE creatures. Nice to see lots of conservation and breeding
