Overpriced and a poorly signed to the location. The owners need to visit a Sea World centre to see how to run it!

Took our granddaughter here whilst in Hunstanton on holiday. The centre is quite small and provides about an hour's entertainment and that by going round twice! There are relatively few exhibits apart from the main sea life tank so not a lot of variety other...More
