Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor

Experience life under the sea as you meet more than 4000 weird and wonderful creatures at the UK’s largest aquarium, National Marine Aquarium. There you’ll find over 4 million litres of water,  teeming with sharks, rays and other species. To top it all off, this is a conservation charity so with each visit you’re helping protect marine creatures. A win-win!

Feel like an underwater explorer as you discover 6 zones featuring a variety of inhabitants - from the underwater locals at Plymouth Sound, all the way to the exotic species at the Great Barrier Reef. You’ll get the chance to meet the residents too, namely Friday the Green Turtle, Neptune the Giant Pacific Octopus and Howie the massive Sand Tiger Shark.

With daily scuba dive shows, Ocean Expert talks and even a soft play for the kids, the National Marine Aquarium is fun for the whole family. Fancy something really special? Snooze under the sea with the Sleeping with Sharks family sleepover.
