National Marine Aquarium and Rockfish restaurant
Felix says “there were loads of big, big, big sharks and there was one that swam really close to us at the glass. There were lots of jellyfish that glowed in the dark, some were pink, some were purple and some were blue. I had little calamaris and chips for lunch. They were scrumptious.”
Nana said “the aquarium is very disabled friendly and takes about 2-3 hours to go round. Fast-track entry is worth doing at the height of season. Their signage explaining the fish in each tank was a bit dark to read, but they are in the process of updating it to make it easier. Consider parking in the multi-story for longer to be able to explore the old part of Plymouth’s harbourside.”
Rockfish is a chain of fish restaurants in the south-west. They have an extensive menu as well as fresh fish, priced daily, according to what has come in on the boats. They provided a fantastic kids Squid Pack for Felix which included a little magazine, stickers, crayons, a wallet, snap card game, and a window sticker.
