Its position on the seaside is one of Fowey’s biggest charms, and the Fowey Aquarium is the perfect Fowey attraction to learn more about its connection with the sea and the creatures that call it home. This attraction may be a small one but the TripAdvisor reviews reflect its greatness, so expect a warm welcome and lots of information as you wander around.
With the added intrigue of its position beneath the old town hall, the aquarium includes exhibits of the sea life found locally, and it makes for an engaging way for children to learn more about the coast during their stay. The staff are always happy to answer questions, and if the tanks’ inhabitants are feeling shy they’ll even try and entice them out for you.
The highlight of most visits is the touch tank, which enables visitors to touch some of the fish for themselves. This is also a great attraction if you’re on a budget, as entry is just £2.
