Really good, great for kids and adults alike. Wonderful sea creatures from our coast. Great rock pool for kids to touch some of the wildlife. I remember this when I was a child and going back 40 years later didn’t disappoint.

A lovely small aquarium full of local fish, crab, lobster and many others. All run by a very knowledgable local. Well worth spending an hour of anyone’s time.
