On Sunday we were at a bit of a loose end so we went to Anglesey Sea Zoo for a couple of hours. It was a lovely sunny day but very cold so I wrapped the girls up in their bobble hats and scarves and headed over the bridge to Anglesey.
Anglesey Sea Zoo
Anglesey Sea Zoo is an aquarium which displays British marine wildlife – all the fantastic creatures you can find around the UK coast.
The aquarium have some conservation programmes including a Lobster Hatchery, Seahorse Breeding Programme and Crawfish Research Programme. Additionally they have beach cleaning programmes. They have three daily talks and you can watch the fish being fed.
I haven’t been to Anglesey Sea Zoo in such a long time! We spent an hour or so going around the aquarium. We would have mooched around for longer it wasn’t for the fact that my Mam was so cold. It wasn’t overly cold in there but she was complaining. Also, we didn’t get to catch any of the talks but I would like to go back to have a listen to them.
We had lunch in the cafe – after buying some gifts at the gift shop. After food we went out to the kids play area. The girls had lots of fun running around and Little Miss loved being a captain on the pirate ship.
We paid £7.75 each for the adults. The girls were free since they are under 3. They also do family tickets if you have kids over 3 years of age. The aquarium is pram and wheelchair friendly. There is only one area which isn’t accessible which is a very brief walkway over one of the tanks.
Dogs are not allowed into the aquarium but there is an outdoor dog playpen. Padlocks are available from reception for a £5 deposit.
The aquarium is now closed over the Winter but will be re-opening next Spring. In the meantime you could have a look at the website and social media. Especially if you’re interested in learning more about Menai The Sea Turtle the tropical sea turtle found in the Menai Strait.
