Your aquarium ticket will be valid all day for the date purchased, so you can come and go as you please. With more than 75 displays, and 2,000+ residents (!), we are constantly expanding and introducing new features to the aquarium and our surrounding attractions - such as the latest SeaLab extension with microscope, lobster hatchery project, spectacular jellyfish breeding tanks and huge coral display that the kids can climb inside.
Below are a few video examples to give you a quick snapshot of our many stunning displays:
Our Aquarium begins with freshwater displays where you can see all of the native sea life of local streams, ponds & rivers. We display many fascinating species such as different breeds of carp, alongside barbel, chub, grayling, perch, minnow and many more. Watch how hungry the big carp always look!
The Shark & Ray Pool is a great display of native shark & skate species as well as tub gurnard, turbot, plaice, halibut & even a couple of cuckoo wrasse hiding within the rocks! The rays are very sociable and will often come up to the surface to get some attention from visitors. Usually (non lockdown!) visitors can touch the fish, as they are incredibly inquisitive and friendly.
We have a number of Tropical Marine Reef displays, with newcomers in the recently extended SeaLab. Take your time and relax amid the prismatic colours and hypnotic movement!
Sunken ships make a optimal home for many species. Inside the Ship Wreck you'll see species that prefer to live at a greater depth of the ocean, hidden away in the rocks & camouflaging into their surroundings.
Watch in amazement as our monstrous gilthead bream and giant pollock lurk amid the deep reef. What adventures can you imagine happen in the murky depths?!
