Tel: 01297 444230
Discover close up the local fish and marine life of the Jurassic coast and learn about Lyme's maritime history.

During a visit, you'll have the opportunity to interact with the sea creatures. Kids, not to mention Mum and Dad, will enjoy the truly unique experience of hand feeding the mullet, holding a starfish and stroking a lobster. Watch videos of visitors getting close to the creatures in our 'things to see' section.

Although we're compact in size, you'll find a variety of fish and marine life on display including Lobster, Mullet, Starfish, Ballan Wrasse, Short Spined Sea-Scorpion, Hermit Crabs and Sea Mouse.

Other exhibits include nautical artefacts and a presentation about the history of the Cobb, making the aquarium one of the most interesting places to visit in Lyme Regis. A brilliant place to visit come rain or shine! For further information visit:
