Access for all

Bristol Aquarium is committed to providing maximum accessibility for all our customers and we continue to monitor feedback and review performance in order to provide a high standard of visit for all visitors.

  • We offer discounted entry for disabled visitors and carers are given free entry. This is offered at one standard concession rate of £13.00.
  • The aquarium has ramps throughout and multi-level viewing.
  • We have two wheelchairs available for visitor use.
  • There are two accessible toilets located on the ground floor, both approximately 50m into the aquarium on the ground floor (one is unlocked and includes a baby change area, the other is a RADAR Key operated bathroom. Of which a key can be obtained from our welcome desk). These facilities are available for paying and non-paying visitors.
  • Talks and feeding demonstrations are announced throughout the aquarium over a tannoy system and are also displayed on the ground floor at the entrance.
  • A hearing loop is in operation at the entrance of the Aquarium, as well as some parts of the displays area.
  • Access is available to the whole aquarium for service dogs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Please note, during winter maintenance (mid November to end December 2016) some pathways are narrower than usual but still wheelchair accessible.

In some areas of the Aquarium there is low lighting for the welfare of our marine life, creating a more natural environment for them. If you have any concerns regarding this please do contact us.



As we are based in the city centre (Harbourside area) we do not have a car park. For advice on parking please visit our Find Us page.
