EVENING SPOOKY TOUR (only on the 28th of October!)


Come along to our story-led tour of Bristol Aquarium and the monsters’ of the deep. Visitors to the aquarium are led by a famous pirate, a mermaid, a lost Amazonian explorer and a sea monster!. Earlier timeslots are more family friendly whilst the bigger scares happen later in the evening!

The tours are family-friendly allowing visitors to see the aquarium after dark – it’s a special experience trekking through the botanic houses in the dark and getting to see our nocturnal animals more active at night! The tours are full of spooky tales and gruesome facts given by some quirky characters who make the whole experience interactive and fun! This years theme is myths and legends of the sea.
