About Us

From the hidden world of UK waters, the amazing new Bristol Aquarium transports visitors to the spectacular 'underwater gardens' of the Mediterranean and stunning beauty of tropical waters - home to everything from seahorses and puffer fish to living corals and tropical sharks.

Other displays reveal the diversity of the aquatic world with naturally themed mangrove, tropical rainforest and fast-moving river habitats alongside open-top tanks, caves, wooden walkways and bridges.

The centrepiece of the aquarium is the spectacular coral reef housed within a gigantic ocean display.

The reef is home to exotic species like graceful angelfish, zebra sharks, black tip reef sharks and hundreds of dazzlingly beautiful fish that use the reef like a bustling undersea city.

Enjoy the closest of undersea encounters in an underwater walk-through tunnel through the reef, from inside a glass cavern and via a massive acrylic viewing window.

The aquarium aims to take children on a journey to explore the drama of the British coast, the underwater gardens of the Mediterranean and the dazzling beauty of a spectacular coral reef.

Over 40 living displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep; from sharks and lobsters to seahorses and tropical fish.

Once you become a member of the Bristol Aquarium, you can enjoy free unlimited access for a whole year! Plus special newsletters, offers and information on special events throughout the year. When you visit, please speak to staff about becoming a member.

Not to mention…
Splash out on a birthday party at the aquarium!

The Bristol Aquarium also offers fab themed children’s birthday parties, with a choice of either Pirate, Mermaid or Shark themed table settings.

Your party lasts for around 3 hours, and the package includes a guided tour led by the aquarium's very own Pirate King or Queen, a birthday tea with a visit from Charlie the Clownfish, and a 40 minute film in the IMAX 3D cinema.

For more information, prices and to arrange your child’s birthday party, please call 0117 929 8929 and we will be happy to help you.
