  • There are three accessible toilets located on the ground floor, all approximately 50m into the aquarium on the ground floor. These facilities are available for paying and non-paying visitors.



  • A hearing loop is in operation at the entrance of the Aquarium, as well as some parts of the displays area.
  • Talks and feeding demonstrations are announced throughout the aquarium over a tannoy system and are also displayed on at the entrance on a TV screen.



  • Please note we do not have our own car parking facilities.
  • In some areas of the Aquarium there is low lighting for the welfare of our marine life, creating a more natural environment for them.
