Having been blue planet several times. I have to say it's a great place to go but you can easily have walked round it within an hour or two. For the price, I'd say head to Chester zoo for a full days worth of enjoyment....More

Was a good day, we enjoyed the walk around and some of the talks. There was a member of staff, Maria, who was very informative, approachable and didn't speak to us like we didn't know anything about the marine life she was presenting.

I love it here, it's fun and colourful. It can get mega busy in school holidays. I would go to this place more often but it's just too expensive.

I am doing the shark encounter next month at 4pm . How long does it last in total ? 4pm seemed late in the day. I am coming with my husband and 4 year old so just thinking how late it will be . Thanks
