Ilfracombe Aquarium

Harbour Ilfracombe EX34 9EQ

Conservation is the focus of this small aquarium beyond the harbour, whose tanks illustrate the aquatic life from Exmoor streams, rivers and rock pools then into the harbour and out to the deep seas off Lundy Island. Striking the right balance between educational and fun the beautiful exhibits carefully recreate natural habitats, providing home to over 75 different species. Kids will adore the feeding sessions (hourly from 11am) in a large tank of harbour life. Small but effective it fits perfectly with the surroundings, aided by the fact it's in the historic Old Lifeboat House.
