  • Always an interesting place to visit. Been here many times and it's a good place to take children on a wet and windy day. Not so large and can get busy. Parking on Madeira Drive is possible or further along towards the marina with a nice walk on the promenade. Also nearby to the pier to combine a visit.
  • Plenty to see here, great for kids. Took 5he grandchildren who loved being so close to all the sea life. Pity about part being closed for works, but I'm sure it will be even better when completed. Will definitely come back when done.
