Harbourside Café

Harbourside Café Our café is part of the aquarium building but like the gift shop, mini golf and boat pool is accessible to the general public, not just ticket holders. The location is amazing, with views overlooking the harbour and out across the Solway to Scotland on clear days. If the weather allows there are picnic tables and a patio, allowing us to seat 60+ customers at any one time so we can cope with coaches on all but the busiest days.
