Kelly Tarlton’s Sea Life Aquarium (formerly Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World) is an excellent attraction despite all the glossy brochures that make it sound like a tourist trap worth avoiding. The aquarium was constructed from disused sewage storage tanks and it was unique at the time as it was one of the first aquaria to feature curved walk-through tunnels.

The aquarium features a large range of marine life including sharks and stingrays and there is now also a very good Antarctic Ice Adventure attraction featuring King and Gentoo penguins and a replica of Scott’s hut from the South Pole from the 1912 South Pole expedition.
