3 reviews of Lake District Coast Aquarium in English
I agree with review above - from the outside it looks v small and unprepossessing so it’s an amazing surprise just how much stuff is packed in - lots of big fish, lobsters, eels and all sorts. The displays, tanks and information are all really well thought out, interesting and accessible (in fact much better than some much bigger aquariums I’ve been to where the labels sometimes don’t even match what’s in the tank…) plus the staff are happy to talk if you’ve got questions as you’re going round - I think it could easily take up half a day and is definitely a good reason to go out to the coast. Entry fee of about £6 will be money well spent.
Situated in what appeared to me to be the deserted old fishing town of Maryport (I swear we did not see a soul on the streets as we drove down to the attraction!) this is quite a small family attraction which kept a group of twenty-somethings entertained for about an hour and a half. Not bad going for the fairly inexpensive entry fee.
I do like aquaria, and this one proved to be great fun with the staff very friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining and the exhibits very accessible to adults and the little people (me and children).
I loved the ray pool, where feedings, talks and demonstrations are held regularly, and the fish are really friendly and love to be stroked.
The cafe was a pleasant enough experience, and good value, though the menu was nothing remarkable, however checking out their website, they now serve thai food…randomly!
