First look into the shop and you see shells everywhere from all over the world.Educational for kids and adults. There's a paid museum within the shop for more interesting display. Big display octopus which you can see from afar.

Took the wife in for a look, fantastic range of shells and weird/wonderfull sea critters. The “live aquarium” tanks are a bit tired and need upgrading. The whole place is a bit dated but still worth a look. The gift shop is certainly well stocked...More

Was a very unique and interesting place to visit. I loved seeing all the different shells from around the world and the animals that were made out of shells.

An absoulutely brilliant display of shells and other marine creatures. The Grandkids were blown away with the display, they spent ages walking around in awe. Well worth a visit.
