Discover the ocean by day and by night!
Come and see our NEW state of the art attraction Day & Night the first of its kind in the UK. Day & Night offers guests the chance to experience the 24-hour wonder of a coral reef as it moves through the day in a 750,000-litre display. The £2.7 million refurbishment took 8 months to complete and has been wowing guests since it opened at the end of May 2019.
