Did you know crabs and lobsters can taste with their feet? Or a group of jellyfish is called a smack? No, us neither. But they are among the many fascinating facts that visitors to the UK’s largest aquarium attraction can learn. It’s easy to spend several hours there so you can pop in to the Waves Cafe at any time to refuel on a snack or a main meal. The alfresco Sands Cafe opens from March to October, and Horizons Cafe is open during school holidays for hot drinks and cake.
Chef Craig Walker makes an effort to champion local producers and to offer healthy, local and seasonal eating. All the meat is reared to UK welfare standards and the eggs are free-range. Fairtrade and organic products are used wherever possible. Albacore tuna is caught by line and pole, and prawns and Pacific salmon are MSC approved.
