Beyond The Surface Tours

There's a lot going on behind the scenes at the National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham and now you can team up with our expert aquarist guides to go deep beyond the surface...

It takes lots of care and attention to keep all of our beautiful marine creatures fed, happy and healthy.

Now you can step behind the scenes with one of our expert aquarists and discover how we care for our marine and fresh-water animals.

Suitable for adults and children aged 4+ you’ll have 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 whilst also giving you the opportunity to ask all of those burning marine life questions!
