About

Let us take you on a fascinating journey through the original Victorian architecture of the oldest operating aquarium in the world from the coastline to the depths of the ocean. Discover a magical underwater world filled with a dazzling array of amazing creatures. Every step will reveal something new, from a face to face encounter with sharks to a hands-on rockpool experience.

As well as being able to ride the UK’s first Glass Bottom Boat, have a fascinating Behind the Scenes Tour and join in with our free interactive rockpool experience where you can touch crabs and starfish, there is another new feature for 2014 – Rainforest Adventure!

Underneath the rainforest canopy, discover something amazing as you come face to face with one of the world’s largest species of snake. Climb through mangrove roots to join more inhabitants of the rainforest such as deadly piranhas and poisonous dart frogs.

Free talks and feeds are available throughout the day to learn about the creatures and how you can help Sea Life with their conservation efforts.

*An additional charge applies for the boat and Behind the Scenes tour.
