Ilfracombe Aquarium

fracombe Aquarium is an award-winning, all-weather, educational, family attraction located in the Old Lifeboat House alongside Ilfracombe's picturesque and historic harbour. The town is found on the dramatic North Devon coast 20 minutes drive from Barnstaple, 10 minutes from Woolacombe, set amongst the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The aquarium provides a fantastic insight into the wonders of the aquatic world found locally around North Devon. Its beautiful exhibits are carefully recreated natural habitats, providing home to over 75 species of fish, some of which for many visitors, have never been seen before. Whether you enjoy rockpooling, fishing or scuba diving you will be fascinated. For your planning, average visitor dwell time within the aquarium is 30 minutes, but many spend a lot longer with the fish or enjoying our excellent cafe and shop facilities.
