Animal Welfare Charities

The Ilfracombe Aquarium

The Quay, Ilfracombe EX34 9EQ, UK – 01271 864533

Really enjoyed our visit here. Yes, as others say it's small and theres not a huge amount of space when it's a busy day. But the staff here are really friendly, know their stuff and will happily explain things to kids and feed the fish for them to see. Even better, if it is too busy you can go around a second time on the same days ticket.

Great little aquarium visit as many times you like on your day ticket... my four year old loved it she really enjoyed the trails and reading about and seeing all of the sea life. Great to see species relative to the area visited ... accommodating staff very friendly and knowledgeable. My little girl wanted to revisit the following day!!!

RNLI Ilfracombe Lifeboat Station

Lifeboat House, 14 Broad St, Ilfracombe EX34 9EE, UK – 01271 863771

Took a look around here when the doors were open for visitors. Good for a look around at the quality kit they have, gives great reassurance as everything was very well maintained and ready for action.

Very interesting lifeboat house, some expensive specialist traction units.
