Portsmouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium is launching its ‘After School Offer’ in January aimed at mums and dads on the school run.
As part of the offer, which will be available on Thursday January 12th, 19th and 26th, the ‘Schools Out Ticket’ will allow entry for just £5.25 for mum, dad, grandparent or a child minder plus up to TWO children free of charge after 3pm.
The school run promotion is to provide families with a place to entertain the children during the cold and dark January afternoons.
Blue Reef’s Hannah Butt said: “January can be a difficult month to keep children entertained, what with the drop in temperature and early sun sets.
“We thought we would give something back to the local people and offer a great discount for after school fun.”
From the hidden world of UK waters, Blue Reef, Portsmouth transports visitors to the spectacular ‘underwater gardens’ of the Mediterranean and the stunning beauty of tropical waters – home to everything from seahorses and puffer fish to living corals and tropical sharks.
At the aquarium’s heart is a giant tropical ocean tank where an underwater walkthrough tunnel offers incredibly close encounters with a huge range of exotic coral reef species.
More than 40 naturally-themed displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep from native sharks and rays to the cute otters and colourful reptiles and amphibians!
• The Blue Reef Aquarium, Clarence Esplanade, Southsea, Portsmouth. Open 10am daily. For more information call 02392 875222, visit or find us on
