A SEAFRONT attraction has celebrated 20 years of entertaining tourists.

The Seaquarium opened in June 1995, and was the first seaside pier to be built in Britain for almost a century.

The attraction hosted competitions and activities at the weekend to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

A spokesman said: “While the centre has maintained many of its original features and exhibits, there have been some popular additions over the years.

“The most dramatic change occurred in 2014, when its Fantastic Phobias exhibit was created.

“A move from the traditional style of exhibits usually found in aquariums, Fantastic Phobias is home to a variety of small animals that challenge visitors to face their fears.”
