Hopefully this is the one I visited, it's free entry with a donation. It shows what the fish look like and an insight to what is actually in our oceans...very informative

Well worth a visit. Lovely display of local fish mainly caught in crab pots. The fish are returned to the sea. Well kept and presented. Just give a donation.

Interesting, if small, aquarium that only takes donations. Nice variation of marine animals that are around the area so informative too. 5 mins is long enough to see it all though

The aquarium is a must see. The fish and creatures seem very much at home and the tanks are kept clean. It's is a very good experiences for people of all ages and it's free. But please leave a donation so this attraction remains

A nice diversity of fish, crabs, star fish. Don't miss the crab who uses his pincers to pick up and move stones.

Hello, I know it is open from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm most days, but that may begin from the beginning of April. Sorry I cannot be of any more help as I live in Bristol and have only visited myself.
