Visited with our grandchildren aged 5 and 8, and although a seemingly pricey entrance fee, we spent four hours there, owing to such a great selection of activities. We all enjoyed it.

Hello Jonny, whilst I appreciate visiting aquariums is not the cheapest experience, looking after our creatures is not a cheap process either. With tickets available from £10.50 per person when booking in advance most of our visitors consider this excellent value for money. The glass...More

Went with my husband for a day out as we live near Brighton. Easy to get to as well as lots to do and see. We enjoyed it just us two but think it's a fabulous place for families to enjoy with their children.

Firstly. Quoting the word kingfisher gets you discount. The staff were friendly. The best part about it is definitely the walk through tank and where we spent the most of our time. The huge Ray and Giant turtle steal the show and make going worthwhile.

Not at the actual attraction no. There is a multi-storey car park very nearby, like less than a five minute walk from the aquarium. I always find it cheaper to get the train to Brighton, as parking there costs the earth!!

Yes but they say that they turn people away if it gets too busy ! I went on Friday just gone .. it took a little under an hour to look round and I came out feeling sorry for the creatures in there , too small .
