This small but well-designed aquarium has all the usual kid pleasers, including slithery conger eels, ferocious sharks, and rubbery rays. There's a touch pool where they can get up close and personal. If you are then inspired to take to the water yourself, the leisure center next door charges very reasonable rates. They also have a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, and -- smart move, this -- a fully supervised child care and play zone.
