  • Really disappointing, some of the exhibits were good but the 360 tunnel was poor, overall way overpriced for the experience, would definitely not recommend it or make any plans to go back  more »
  • I have been here before but this time I brought my daughter who loved it, plenty on offer for kids, she enjoyed the penguins especially and loved the tunnel towards the end, I would say about an hour....  more »
  • Really enjoyed our visit - we bought tickets online for 3.30pm following day , a Saturday afternoon; only £13ea so great value. Although we missed feeding times, it was pretty quiet and we could take our time as we walked round. Really impressive tanks and a wide range of fish including sharks - they even have a guitar shark (yep). The 4D cinema was good fun too - even at my age! Would like to have seen more details on the marine life - what they eat, predators etc In all, a great couple of hours.
  • Really enjoy it with my kids. It looked small from the outside but it kept us entertained for 3 hours. We took a picnic and the staff were helpful saying we can eat anywhere there is a bench. The water tunnel and windows were amazing. Great buzz from the reaction of our kids and other people.
