About
The Lake District Coast Aquarium is a well established visitor attraction situated on the harbourside of Maryport, a small town with Roman roots on the scenic Solway Firth coastline. The Aquarium displays contain mainly native species and are fully documented, so of interest to all generations and levels of interest. Tickets allow re-entry all day so the full range of aquarist talks and feeding demonstrations can be enjoyed. The aquarium has a popular Cafe serving a wide range of meals and refreshments overlooking the harbour. The Cafe is open every day to all comers, including those with well behaved dogs! During cold weather a wood burning stove provides a cosy atmosphere. The Gift shop is popular with locals as well as visitors thanks to a wide range of themed goods, ranging from pocket money toys to household furnishings. Outside is a 14 hole crazy golf course that is very popular as there is no age limit to getting involved with the fun! Now FREE with your admission ticket.

Good afternoon out

Came here with a few friends for a day out. Great for the price. Loads to see and was all very well organised. The ticket price includes free crazy golf and you were allowed to go in and out as many times as you like up until 5pm. Will def recommend. Good value for money

Spent a couple of hours looking around, really interesting and plenty to see, then played crazy golf which was great fun and included in the price. Would definitely recommend.

Interesting aquarium plus minigolf, boats and cafe
Aug 2021
We spent a good hour or so in the aquarium itself with our grandsons (age 9 and 13) both of whom were fascinated by many different exhibits which were very well presented in a small space. The sheet to tick off fish seen was good, although we did not find them all! We learnt a lot.

The aquarium is not all there is as minigolf is included in the price and there is also a 'boat pool' with remote control boats, which both boys also enjoyed, as well as a cafe. We did't have time for the play area.

All in all it was a morning well spent and well worth the icket price.

A really great aquarium!
Aug 2021 • Family
Was expecting a big standard aquarium and was really pleasantly surprised! Seen things I haven’t seen at an aquarium before, was really well priced and focused on local wildlife as well.

Staff member was very knowledgeable and engaging, definitely enhanced the experience :) and the free crazy golf was fun and a nice addition to the experience.

Coastal tackle and wonderful staff
Aug 2021 • Family
We popped by for some help with fishing tackle. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, especially Paul who delayed his lunch to help us rig a rod and gave us some great tips both angling and tourist.

Wow, mesmerising
Aug 2021 • Couples
Wow, it’s like entering the Tardis. Small on the outside and so much inside.
We are locals so went to support the area, we were very pleasantly surprised, well worth a visit.
We will be back and take advantage of the scattered chairs and spend more time being mesmerised

Good value and fabulous fish!
Aug 2021
Great little aquarium. Bigger than it looks and a really good variation of sea and fish life with great explanations and information. Really good value when it includes the crazy golf at the end which was a perfect course for families.
