National Sea Life Centre

Plus maybe an entry fee - but that is not always the case: with our countryside, many museums and public monuments you don't have to put your hand in your pocket. There are dozens of preserved railways; thousands of stately homes and castles; parks, caves, beaches... and every one of them more memorable and educational than repeats of Eastenders, to say nothing of being more fun.
