Visit the Blue Planet Aquarium, near to Cheshire Oaks

With the school holidays not too far away, you may want to consider visiting the Blue Planet Aquarium near to Cheshire Oaks. Here is your local listings review to help you decide.

As far as aquariums go, the Blue Planet Aquarium rivals any other in the country. With 12 uniquely themed zones, there's enough there to keep the family entertained for a few hours. Home to everything, from 3 metre Sand Tiger Sharks to 3cm poison dart frogs.

In addition, there is a 70 metre aquatunnel where you can view a vast array of sea-creatures (including the sharks!)

The only downside is the cost. From admission prices to the cost of food/drinks. You'll need to have deep pockets if you are taking your family. The food is pretty basic and will set you back £6.60 a meal.
