Visitor Safety Amid Coronovirus

June 29, 2020

Following government guidance, during closure Blue Reef Aquarium meticulously reviewed every part of the visitor journey and has undertaken new measures to ensure everyone has an enjoyable yet safe experience with us.

Newquay’s local aquarium is thrilled open to the public once again from Saturday 4th July – so visitors can enjoy the colourful wonders of an underwater world, right in the heart of Cornwall.


Following a thorough clean of the attraction, our new safety measures on opening include:

  • Visitor guidance on arrival
  • Limited capacity to help social distancing
  • Enhanced cleaning routines
  • Regular hand sanitising stations
  • Clear signage throughout
  • Sneeze screens on till points
  • Protective equipment for staff
  • One way journey around the Aquarium and shop
  • Takeaway only cafe facilities
  • Reduced touch points throughout

While we have worked hard to put these safety measures in place, we all need one another to adhere to our guidelines. If you’re planning to visit Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay please take a moment to read through our customer charter below:
