Nostalgia: Construction of Scarborough Aquarium

editorial image

Construction is underway on a two and a half acre site underneath the Cliff footbridge by the Marine Aquarium Company.

The Company invested the colossal sum of £110,000 in a gigantic underground labyrinth. From start to official opening on Whit Monday 1877, the work took three years to complete.
