Rhyl SeaQuarium has an open seafront location and sits on the beautiful North Wales coastline. We would like to welcome all new explorers to join us on a voyage of discovery as we travel beneath the waves, from tranquil fresh waters to the cold depths of the abyss. Along the way we will encounter the strangely shaped sturgeon, as well as sharks found off our very own coast and rays that glide effortlessly through the water. We will also find solitary lobsters, conger eels and mystical axolotls before entering the Lethal Reef, home to some of the most poisonous animals on our planet. These are just a few of the amazing, strange and beautiful animals that await us on our adventure.

Visited the seaquarium while staying at Pontins Prestatyn. Is about a 10min drive down to Rhyl. There is a underground car park about a 2min walk from the seaquarium and we paid £4.50 for all day parking which seems to be the standard around the...More

We had a lovely day out at the sea aquarium and there was a challenge on for the kids and they were excited to do this! I find the place is very small though and a bit expensive for what is there

No. There is a big sign saying no outside food to be eaten in the attraction. There is a cafe on site, but we didn't go.
