Summer Holiday event: Bon Voyage!

Step into our port terminal at the aquarium this Summer and go on an adventure around the world’s oceans. We’ll take your ticket and transform them into a boarding pass and passport for you to take around the aquarium with you.

Find our animal postcards to tick off in your passport, take part in our postcard colouring competition, and visit all of our extra activities throughout the day at no extra cost.

We’ve also extended our opening hours from 10am until 6pm every day in the Summer (last admission at 5pm).


Don’t forget to stop by our departure lounge for refreshments in the C-Shed Café and a souvenir toy in our gift shop.
