From Friday 27 November images from ITV’s hit series and global phenomenon ‘River Monsters’ are going on display at Bristol Aquarium.

The inaugural River Monsters #WhatWeSee exhibition showcases over 25 incredible photographic images from the hit series that is hosted by extreme angler explorer Jeremy Wade, and produced in Bristol by Icon Films.

Visitors to the Harbourside attraction will be able to get up close and personal with some of Wade’s biggest catches, most remote and inhospitable fishing locations and bizarre looking fish.
