Man and fish have always had a special relationship, from the first evolutionary steps into the oceans, to the revitalising kipper slap to the face. Carp on about the sea with today's Groupon: £16 for an unlimited winter family pass to St Andrews Aquarium.
This splashy home is haven to an array of marine life, with seahorses, seals, sharks and fish schools allowing deep-sea devotees to get up close with the blue planet. With a picturesque location on the Fife coast, St Andrews Aquarium offers a suitably aquatic outlook for its pelagic patrons. Land-based friends are also welcomed with the new family of meerkats providing cheeky smiles and hurried scurries for all to enjoy.
With an ethos based on entertainment and education, St Andrews Aquarium offers families the opportunity to come and go as they please over the winter period with an unlimited pass allowing entry for two adults and three children, whenever they like, until the end of February. Daily demonstrations of seal feeding and meerkat talks are among the many events ensuring that freshwater families can keep on returning.
Aside from boasting a whale-sized 452 Likes on Facebook, St Andrews Aquarium has received positive reviews from visitors who praised the wide variety of animals on display.
Was a fun day out for us, two adults. There was a good selection of fish and other sea creatures. The seal and meerkat feeding were interesting and not too crowded. The meerkats in particular were lovely, and they seemed very happy in their enclosure. We had some food in the cafe, which was very tasty and reasonably priced.
