School Trips

Our lovely aquarium is uniquely placed in the heart of the largest beach-launched fleet and fishing community in the country – providing a wealth of educational material for children of all key stages.

What Our School Trip Offers

A school visit here takes your pupils on an underwater journey. Starting from the shores of the UK where they’ll come face-to-face with lobsters, seahorses, sharks, and rays; continuing into tropical waters to explore exotic pufferfish, a giant octopus, deadly lionfish, and, of course, Nemo the colourful clownfish.

In addition to this thrilling ocean-world tour, you and your class will also get…

Pretty much everything you’ll need to make the trip one that your pupils will treasure forever. Feel that we’re missing something? Give us a call on 01424 718776 to let us know what we can do to make the trip special for your class.

Why You Should Take a Guided Tour

For an extra £1.50 per pupil, our aquarists can take you on a guided tour of the aquarium, which lasts approximately 45 minutes.

The children will be led by one of our friendly and knowledgeable aquarists on the ultimate underwater safari, learning about the marine life in each ‘zone’; from native fish found along the British shores to tropical species from around the world. They will explore our Jungle Discovery zone that’s packed full of creepy crawlies and remarkable reptiles – your pupils are sure to bring back a wealth of knowledge to the classroom.
