Lake District Coast Aquarium
The Lake District Coast Aquarium is situated on the harbour side at Maryport in Cumbria

The Lake district Coast Aquarium opened in May 1997 and since then we have won several tourism awards including the Cumbria Tourism Award 2010.

The Lake District Coast Aquarium Maryport houses over 55 themed tanks containing a variety of the marine life found around the Cumbrian coastline, from fish to crustaceans, as well as a purpose built tropical marine community reef tank.

We pride ourselves in being one of  the best places to see some of the varied marine life of the Irish Sea. We don’t keep any mammals like seals or otters, but have a huge variety of fish and invertebrates (starfish, lobsters, etc) in 45 carefully themed and informative displays.

Your admission ticket allows you to re-enter the display area all day so you can enjoy seeing the fish being fed and listen to talks by the friendly staff. There are regular fish feeding demonstrations every day, at 12.00, 2.00, 3.00 and 4.00 o’clock, with extra events during school holidays.

Opening Times

We are open from 9:30am to 5:00pm everyday except Christmas Day & Boxing Day

All tickets are valid until 5:00pm, this allows re-entry for the ticket holder throughout the day. This allows you to enjoy all the facilities in whatever sequence you choose and re-enter the display area to see the scheduled talks and fish feeding.
