Lyme Regis Aquarium

If you're staying at Newlands Holiday Park in Dorset and want to learn about the marine life in the area, Lyme Regis Aquarium is a fantastic place to visit.

The aquarium is a family-run attraction that works hard to give its customers an interactive and enjoyable experience. If you're curious about the marine life that lives in waters along the Jurassic Coast, you should definitely visit. The aquarium is home to fish that can be found in the surrounding seas, providing a great opportunity for exploration. Some of the many wonderful sea creatures you will be able to observe are ballan wrasse, lobster, sea scorpions, crabs, and dogfish!

Interactive learning

Lyme Regis Aquarium offers a range of fun and interactive activities that will have your kids jumping up and down for joy. You will have the opportunity to hold their five-legged sea friend, the starfish and feed tame and friendly mullet. The mullet will touch your hand as they eat the food, making it feel like it’s giving you a kiss! Visitors always rave about this activity and say it's the most exciting part of their visit. Many even come back for a second time to experience the unique sensation again.

During your visit, you will have the opportunity to observe crabs and lobsters up close, providing you with some excellent photo opportunities. A trip to the Lyme Regis aquarium is an unforgettable experience that you'll cherish for years to come.

Useful information

This aquarium welcomes dogs on a lead and is wheelchair and pushchair accessible due to its single-floor layout. The tickets are not date or time specific, so you are free to visit any time as long as the aquarium is open. This means that if you end up visiting on a different day than originally planned, it won't be a problem.
