National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth Reviews - Write a Review

  • A truly wonderful place to visit. Very educational and informative. Great for all the family. Some amazing aquariums. Some are enormous! Fantastic fish and all things relating to them. Very educational talks relating to certain areas/tanks We have a season ticket and its been used many times. Handy restaurant.

  • Excellent day out, huge impressive tanks with many species, staff and volunteers massively knowledgeable. A must visit for anyone in Plymouth. Cafe was also very good. Don't forget to gift aid when you buy tickets as the aquarium is a charity and it doesn't cost you anything extra!

  • This is a very good visit. Very informative. Get very close to the fish. Will informed helpful staff. It was reasonably quiet when we visited on a mixed weather Friday afternoon. However I cannot give 5* as the shop had no ordinary postcards for the aquarium of fish. Only three d postcards at £2.99 each! Which when you want to send quite a few cards to grandchildren it works out too expensive. Also the cafe was just too "self service ". No help at all. One had to do everything. Hate to think how chaotic it must be when cafe busy. It was late afternoon when we were at cafe

  • I spend many happy hours here just taking photographs. It's a very relaxing place to walk round. If your local to the area it's always worth getting a yearly ticket. I was spending two to three days a week here and on average three hours a visit. Sometimes it's worth walking round again. There's always something to see so don't miss out. Enjoy your day at the National Marine Aquarium.

  • Huge fan of the aquarium. We bought my son here when he was a baby and he's in primary school now and he still loves it. Lots to see, and it doesn't get too crowded, so you can see everything. Lots of interaction for kids, from looking at hiding fish to crafts. They have a cafe or you can bring a picnic. Plenty of seats by the big tanks so you can have a rest of you need to. Staff are really helpful and if they don't know an answer they'll find out.
