“Our children enjoy it here”

Written on: 17/02/2018 by LiamBobbyJo (5 reviews written)

Our children have loved going to the Blue Planet since they were very small. We go a couple of times a year, our fish and shark mad son would go more, the only thing stopping us is the price. It is very expensive for a family of five to attend. There is a good amount of fish and other things to see. We were really upset last time we went as this big black fish (like the one on Nemo) ate another fish which upset my youngest. Maybe they shouldn't put fish that each other in the same tank. Other… Read Full Review

“Really enjoyed it”

Written on: 30/12/2013 by PMCBETH (1 review written)

Visited yesterday 29th December 2013 and had a great time. We have visited many Sealife centres and this was a good one. So glad I didn't take any notice of the negative reviews. All the animals looked good the sharks were awesome. Loved the travelator in the glass tunnel. Restaurant had a great feature of portholes that you could see the fishes through while enjoying a snack. The food side could be improved but is no worse than I have experienced elsewhere in places such as this. My… Read Full Review

“Expensive, poor value and service”

Written on: 19/02/2013

I visited just yesterday, coming off £60 lighter for the privilege of myself and my daughters visiting, I also had a toddler with me who just luckily made the height barrier for free entry or it would have been even more costly. The entrance fee is crazy enough but to be stung at the end by a parking fee, really does leave you with a sour taste. As with the similar visitor this month, I assumed when entering the car park it was to prevent shoppers using it, not as a way to removed further… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 10/11/2012

Paid £31 for two adults and was round in 20minutes. Sharks are good to look at for ten minutes but after that its boring. Drive 10 minutes down the road to chester zoo and have a full day of looking at the animals for a cheaper price!!… Read Full Review

“Not exciting, over priced and only lasts an hour??”

Written on: 07/06/2012

I think most here have covered what I thought of my experience! I thought I was alone thinking when I got to the end, did I miss something? I tried to backtrack, but it turns out there just isn't much to see? I can't stress enough saying don't go, the prices they charge are a disgrace!! I could've gone with my wife to Chester Zoo for the same price, and last time I went I couldn't get round the Zoo in a day there is so much to see! In contrast Blue Planet is an hour tops, so they're effectively… Read Full Review

“WASTE OF MY TIME AND MONEY”

Written on: 27/04/2012

I had gone to this aquarium with my college class as this is a part of our exam for travel and tourism. When we had got there, not only were the tickets too overpriced, the woman working on the tills at the reception had such a foul mouth and face. She was called Steph and kept on rolling her eyes at us in disgrace as if she was so much better. She talked with such attitude to us and wasn't helpful in the slightest. When we got into the aquarium (20 minutes later) the whole place was too old… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/06/2012

I totally agree with the above review, went with my wife and two children it cost us a little over £50 to get into the aquarium and another £25 for some severely over priced food. The children's meals cost £4.50 each, for the money the kids got 2 greasy fish fingers a few chips and a tiny soft drink, the adult meals were no better quality or value at £6.70 each. Total waste of money much more fun to go to Chester zoo and roughly the same cost, the owners should be ashamed of themselves.

It is a complete rip off!!

I mean the fish and the amphibians etc are really interesting but we managed to complete the whole place and have a good look at everything within 45 minutes!!! That means that we spent £49 and didn't even get a day out!!… Read Full Review

“ ”

Written on: 20/03/2010


This was biggest waste of money. The Aquarium was small, badly organised with a really poor restaraunt. The food was cold, overcooked and dry and cost an arm and a leg.

Seriously, don't waste your time and money… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2010

Very overpriced and not many attractions and if you have a tall 2 yr old child as I do, it means paying over £10 for the pleasure. We spent a total of an hour there, my little one was a bit freaked out after a while so it was an expensive visit.
Not that much to look at really and spent a lot of time waiting for 1 tiny lift to get my buggy around.
The food offering was disgraceful, as long as you wanted chips it was fine but no baby food and nothing suitable for younger kids. Take your own… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/03/2010

visited the aquarium yesterday. and i never write reviews on things - but the state that this place is in made me want to stop other people from going. it costs almost £13 for concessions (i am a student) which is a terrible price for the amount of attractions and time you spend there. about 5 attractions were not in use when we went, and the signage is terrible. we spent about an hour there in total, and we went around twice! (in an attempt to find an area that we may have missed).

“Just been to Blue Planet and will not be returning. ...”

Written on: 16/02/2010

Just been to Blue Planet and will not be returning. Went a few years ago and it has gone down hill!! Over priced and not worth the money at all. making people have their photo taken the minute you walk in, just a shamless attempt and getting even more money out of you. You have to pay if you have a tall kids regardless of their age, shocking, and £10.95 for a 3 year old is disgraceful. The whole place is looking tired and grubby and needs money spent on it. Some of it was under… Read Full Review

visited Blue Planet Aquarium today and whilst the actual aquarium features were wonderful being a self confessed fish freak, the overall day....or should i say hour, was very dissapointing. time in until the exit was an hour and that was including 15 mins food break. the exibitions/ tanks were beautiful and some of the fish on display were breath taking. the tunnel was amazing with sharks, rays and all manner of underwater beauts. the food however from the restaurant was OVERPRICED and vile. a… Read Full Review

Blue Planet Aquarium, expensive entrance fees, they say if your child is under 95 cm,s tall they can go in for free, well that did not apply to my 3 year old daughter, she need to pay the full child price, so for a family of four i got stung for £48.00 - ouch , i didnt buy any food, but i noticed that tea was £1.35 a cup , food looked expensine and rubbish , and the eating area looked messy… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2009

Blue Planet Aquarium was a seriously overpriced day for us as a small family!!! It only took us two hours to complete then we were going round in circles to try to make us feel like we had value for money. Healthy food was very overpriced, but if you want cheap junk food you're ok! Only one lift for disabled/buggies which broke (staff did not seem bothered by this!) and advised us to carry the child in buggy up and down the stairs - not very helpful. take my advice and go to Chester zoo… Read Full Review

A nice half day if you take your time and have food there a bit expencive £14.50 adults and £10.50 for kids, the food wasent bad priced. The best bit was the theatre and the under water tunnel i just wanted to go round and round. There is an outside bit with a play area for kids but you have to go through the gift shop to get to it. Overall a good day out at Blue Planet Aquarium… Read Full Review

“ I was very disappointed in this visit to be totally...”

Written on: 24/07/2009

I was very disappointed in this visit to be totally honest, it was a very expensive hour, which was the time that we spent going around everything within there.
The cost was £14.50 per adult & £10.50 per child, total for us £35.50. If your child is under 95cms then they get in free, however if you have a vey tall 2 year old which I do then you still have to pay a full child place for them, my son is 96cms, so £10.50 for the sake of a cm I think is a bit harsh, what happened to age… Read Full Review
