Family Day Out at Anglesey Sea Zoo

Anglesey Sea Zoo StarfishWe had a great day out at the Anglesey Sea Zoo during our Summer holiday in Anglesey. Our kids loved getting close to the sea creatures. We have been to various Sea Life Centres over the years and this is a similar set up.

I checked the website prior to going to make sure it was open and to check for any special Covid advice. The numbers are limited, there is a marked route around the place and visitors are asked to wear masks. we found that most people were wearing masks and following the routes whilst a couple of families just ignored all the advice, which was a shame for the staff and owners of the place.

Sea Creatures at the Sea Zoo Anglesey

The kids loved looking at all the tanks of sea-life and they particularly liked the lobsters and the starfish.

Seahorses are always a hit with the kids, although there were just a few small tanks with seahorses.

The jellyfish tanks were spectacular with short facts about them alongside the tanks.

Food and Drinks at Anglesey Sea Zoo

There is a cafe serving food and drinks on site.

I don’t know if we caught them on a bad day, but the service was shocking and the food was very average. We waited over an hour for basic lunch items. The coffee was poor, which made the wait feel even worse. Maybe Covid was to blame (like so many things)!

Extra Outdoor Facilities for KidsAnglesey Sea Zoo Octopus

There is a decent play area outside, including wooden obstacles to climb and play on. Also there are some bikes and trikes for younger ones to play on. There is an inflatable bouncy castle with slide and obstacles. Due to Covid restrictions, numbers were very limited and kids had a short turn. Luckily it was quiet and a bit cold during our visit so there weren’t many kids about and our kids got on the bouncy castle quite quickly. I wouldn’t have fancied queuing on a busy day.

Anglesey Sea Zoo also has its own crazy golf course which is an additional cost.

The sea zoo is a fairly small site, but there is enough to see for a wander with kids for an hour or two. We paid just over £30 for a family of four which we felt was good value, especially given that we returned for free for a second visit. We booked in advance due to Covid and paid by card on the door.

Overall this was a good place to visit as our kids loved it so much that they asked to go back again later that week.
