Enter Bristol Aquarium through the hull of a life-size replica of a sunken ship and explore the diverse sea life that thrives in UK waters with over 300 native fish species. Walk through the underwater tunnel and witness some of the world’s most beautiful sharks swimming gracefully overhead. Bristol Aquarium is the only aquarium in the UK to have its very own living and breathing giant botanical house. Known as the Urban Jungle, this enormous biodome showcases exotic plant and tree species from the Mediterranean and Amazon times and is an exciting way for children and adults alike to experience the atmosphere of a real rainforest without having to go abroad.
Bristol Aquarium is a guaranteed fun day out for all of the family with mesmerizing displays such as the Coral Sea Display which houses over 250 marine animals including children’s favourites Nemo and Dory. Let the kids take home a furry version of their new fishy friends by using Bristol Aquarium discounts to get money off selected items in the Aquarium Shop. As well as all the magical sea creatures to watch there are also lots of opportunities for children to learn new and interesting facts – a visit to Bristol Aquarium’s Learning Lab gives kids the chance to see how many of the aquarium’s residents started out as babies and they might even catch a glimpse of a baby shark developing inside its egg case! There are also various talks and events held throughout the year which offer visitors the chance to find out all about their favourite underwater friends or watch them all enjoying feeding time.
