Join forces with deep sea beasties and underwater cuties at Living Coasts. It’s an entire world on its own with environments from all over the world and endless amazing sights.
To get a sense of what’s on offer, introduce yourself to a couple of their fantastic zones. If cute and cuddly is your thing, then head on over to Penguin Beach which has been designed to mimic their African environment. Here you can watch as they waddle and dive, or join them for an oh so sophisticated Penguin Breakfast feeding session.
Take a deep dive into the Mysterious Mangroves where the residents are more alien than anything you’re used to - and more than a little spooky! With loads more, including talks and a conservation programme, mini marine biologists will find loads to love and explore.

Biggest part of this is the sea or coastal birds. Less of an aquariam or zoo. Nice idea was to play with the seals using premade reflective pads to attract their attention. The cafe views were stunning views of the sea coast.
