Oceanopolis - Brest

We visited Oceanopolis today. Got there shortly after 9 to beat the crowds. Left around 5 hours later.

Oceanopolis is a massive aquarium laid out in polar, tropical and temperate zones and is a wealth of information as well as gazillions of sea creatures. Its well worth making the visit and has good facilities for eating etc.

Its probably suited to kids that can read (or who will stay in the buggy) as its not a place than can be rushed through - rushing would do it an injustice. Get there early though as its popular - on one wet day last year over 8000 visited....

The drive was around two hours on dual-carriageway and it was boring. Thanks to satnav we got there sans problem and had advance wanring of fixed speed cameras. We noticed that in Brest we were brought on slightly out of the way routes but these were better than the madness of the main roads.
