Dive into the ocean and discover the wonders of the deep in our colourful aquarium, right in the heart of Bristol. Explore more than 40 naturally-themed displays and spot the thousands of amazing aquatic creatures, including tropical sharks, rays, seahorses, puffer fish, piranhas, and so many more. Wander through our Underwater Tunnelto watch our fascinating marine life swim over your head.
We house a mix of tropical fish from around the world, as well as many that are native to the UK’s waters, so you can get a better understanding of the creatures that live on home shores and further afield.
We’re also the only aquarium in the UK to feature a giant botanical house, known as our Urban Jungle. You can find hundreds of exotic plant and tree species from around the world here, as well as our open-topped Bay of Raysand our Mighty Amazonpools, home to terrapins and freshwater fish.
The aquarium is the perfect place to visit with the whole family. Join us for daily talks and feeds, as well as a host of different themed events and activities throughout the year. You can find more details of these on our events calendar page.
