The National Lobster Hatchery is a great Padstow attraction for those who love sealife. Get up close to some friendly lobsters and learn fascinating facts about them - like how they taste using their feet! This family attraction in Padstow explains how lobsters are caught and their role in the West Country fishing industry, and you'll see conservation in action.
The hatchery is open 7 days per week throughout the whole year, and all profits are put straight into the local marine life. This is an all-weather attraction, and as dogs are welcome inside on their leads it's a popular place for families to spend an hour or two during a day exploring Padstow.
The National Lobster Hatchery takes its research seriously, and it's heeded all over the world. The visitors centre welcomes an impressive 40,000 visitors every year and is proud to teach new generations about sustainability and the impact of lobster stocks on Cornwall.
