Towan Promenade Newquay TR7 1DU 01637 878 134
Come face-to-face with marine life without getting wet, at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium. Explore the underwater environment, from Cornish waters to the Amazon and the Indian Ocean, via a series of colourful tanks housing species from starfish and lobsters to a giant octopus and the deadly stonefish. The main attraction is the underwater tunnel, which takes you beneath the reef sharks, giant turtles, sting rays and pufferfish. For a small, beachside aquarium, there's a wide variety of marine life to see and it's perfect for small children (they even provide step-up stools so they can peer into the tanks more easily). Although the aquarium's size also means that it seems like quite an expensive attraction, your ticket is valid for re-entry as many times as you like during the day, so you can enjoy the aquarium's private beach on the doorstep and come back in for one of the interesting talks or feeding time in the tanks.
