Lake District Coast Aquarium

Lake District Coast Aquarium


The Lake District Coast Aquarium opened in May 1997 and contains 75+ themed tanks containing a collection of the diverse marine life found around the Cumbrian and UK coastline. We also have our Wild Solway exhibition centre with film theatre as well as our new Sea Lab which opened July 2015.

There is also our Harbourside Cafe which serves a variety of freshly prepared snacks, main meals and drinks with views overlooking the harbour and our Gift Shop which is stocked with a variety of gifts to suit all ages.
Our Bait Shop, which opened in 2013, is also proving to be very popular, especially among local fishermen!
Outside we have our 14 hole Crazy Golf course and remote control boats and water blasters.
