The health and safety of our guests and team is our absolute priority and so, further to the Government’s recommendations on social distancing, we have made the decision to temporarily suspend our behind the scenes tours as a precautionary measure. We will continue to follow Government advice and act accordingly.

 

There’s a lot going on beneath the surface at the National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham and now you can team up with our expert aquarist guides to go deep behind the scenes and discover how we care for our marine and fresh-water creatures.

You’ll have privileged access to the working areas usually closed to the public where you can learn about our extensive breeding, research and conservation programmes and see how the fish food is prepared!

Watch the video below to find out what amazing discoveries are in store:
