Portsmouth FC celebrations – Sunday 28th April
We are still open on Sunday, 10am to 5pm, and look forward to welcoming you.
Please be aware that if you plan to visit Blue Reef Aquarium on Sunday, we expect footfall celebrations outside the Aquarium, and parking spaces may be limited. If you’re travelling by car we do recommend car sharing where possible.
Several roads will also be closed for egress purposes between 14:45 and 17:00.

Located Right on Portsmouth’s Seafront

Blue Reef Aquarium Portsmouth is located along the seafront at the tip of Southsea, Portsmouth, making it really easy to find. We’re accessible by public transport and by car, whether you’re travelling from the surrounding areas, further afield in the UK, or from abroad.

We’re within walking distance of the University of Portsmouth, the city’s Historic Dockyard, and Portsmouth Guildhall.

By Car

If you are travelling from the north or across from the south west, join the M27/A27 and follow the brown tourism signs to the seafront. There are plenty of local signs near Portsmouth seafront that will direct you to the aquarium.

Blue Reef Aquarium Portsmouth does not have its own parking facilities. However there is seafront parking operated by the City Council along the Esplanade, directly out front of the entrance. It is Pay & Display parking, and is on a first come first serve basis.

Plan your Journey

By Train

There are regular train services from across the UK. The closest station to the aquarium is Portsmouth Harbour Station, which is about a 30-minute walk away along the city’s picturesque seafront.

Plan your Journey

By Bus

You can catch a bus from anywhere in the city, heading to Southsea Shopping Centre. The aquarium is just a 10-minute walk on the other side of the Southsea Common.
