Are you open?
Yes! We are now open daily! 10.00 – 17:30 (Last admissions 17:00)
Do I need to prebook / book a day and timeslot?
No. Due to the size and nature of the aquarium building we are not able to allocate day or timeslots. Booking online is not essential and you are welcome to pay on the gate. Online bookings are non-refundable but can be redeemed within 6 months from day of purchase.
Are you limiting visitors numbers into the Aquarium?
Yes. To help with social distancing, we currently limit the number of visitors inside the Aquarium. As such, we operate a one-in one-out policy. We occasionally experience queues during peak periods and ask for your patience.
What precautions have been put in place for Covid19?
Our priority throughout the pandemic has been to provide a safe and healthy working environment for our visitors, staff and animals. As such, we have put several precautions in place:
👍 Face coverings are now mandatory when visiting the aquarium 👍 Hand sanitiser is available throughout the aquarium 👍 We are limiting the number of visitors inside the aquarium at any one time. Please note that due to this and during periods of inclement weather, you can experience queues to access the aquarium👍 We have laid down floorsigns in order to maintain social distancing. 👍 We have suspended our reptile handling sessions
Do you accept Tesco Vouchers?
No, not currently. We are no longer part of the scheme but we will honour any old codes that still exist. You can no longrer redeem your points for new Aquarium codes on the Tesco website.
How long does it take to go around the Aquarium?
It depends! We generally recommend 30 to 1 hour. Some visitors spend up to 2 hours inside watching all of the feeds and talks. however, if you’re being led about by an excited toddler, 20 minutes is more suitable!
I have an annual membership. Will it be extended in line with the lockdown period?
