Dive into the Deep this Easter!

Bristol Aquarium is hosting submarine celebrations this Easter holidays from Saturday 8 to Sunday 23 April 2017 with extra hands on activities for families to enjoy.

The central Harbourside attraction is welcoming families to learn all about aquatic creatures in the deep from Wolf Fish with anti-freeze properties in their blood to Jellyfish that can live forever.

Aquarium staff are also sharing stories about the resident Octopus with attitude. Lola the Common Octopus has been at the Aquarium since August 2016 and has been a real handful since her arrival.
