A spokesperson for Living Coasts, Phil Knowling said:
We’ve been here for 15 years now. Lots of local people visited early on but may not have been back that often since. They know our distinctive aviary net on the harbourside and probably think Living Coasts hasn’t changed much, but it has. There are all sorts of tropical fish, seahorses, octopus, stingrays. There are new murals and new displays and new play areas. This is our way of inviting people back in to see how we’re getting on.It’s great when people recommend an attraction to visitors – taxi drivers, bus drivers, shop keepers, hotel workers, they are all important for word-of-mouth. We’d love people to come to Living Coasts so they know who and what we are and why holidaymakers should visit us.I think the weekend will also remind people that, with Living Coasts being right on the water’s edge, the café and terrace are great places to watch the Torbay air show and all the events that take place on the Bay. There will be a new spring menu with chef’s salads alongside the traditional fish and chips and light lunches. The café is licensed, which means you can enjoy a cold beer while taking in the best views of the Bay! I wouldn’t be surprised if more people decide to take advantage of our annual passholder scheme after this weekend.
