The Aquarium Terraces refers to the development on the roof terrace of the Sea Life centre, the original aquarium. There have been a great many changes to the facilities over the decades. About ten years ago the city council redeveloped the Terraces at considerable expence with hopes that they would add to the 'cultural capital' of the new city. When it transpired that what was actually likey to be viable was a massive night club, local residents went ape.
After some time the faciilities have settled down at the usual sort seaside businesses - restaurants and video games.
The circular structure of the main building on the Terraces is quite attractive, and it provides a splendid viewing platform for looking over the promenade, as you eat, drink and relax.
