"My family and I spent a day at the Sea Zoo recently, and I just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful day.
The displays were fascinating, even for my lively 3 year old grandson, who was mesmerised by the fish swimming under his feet! We had a lovely lunch in the Bistro, then the adults had a rest while the children ran off energy in the playground. The pirate ship was a particular hit.
The gift shop was our last port of call, and I even found some things I liked, which is rare, so have a few permanent mementos of a really brilliant day, which didn't cost the earth.
Thank you again,"—Pauline Irving
