Brilliant aquarium with a great selection of fish and informative signs in English as well as French. We easily spent a couple of hours here. Lots of public toilets and a gift shop at the end. Great way to spend a few hours

We visited the aquarium on our recent holiday and had a great time. Great for all ages and we spent a good three hours looking round Advise hiring a audio tour guide to get best out of visit
