"The Coral Kingdom workshop was very interesting for the children. -The workshop was hands on so the children could link it to parts of the aquarium they had already seen or were going to see later in the day. -The aquarium has lots of information that the children can learn from." Lizzie - Barclay Primary

Sensory Sessions

For groups with disabilities or special requirements we offer the opportunity to come in before we open to the public for a private tour around the main aquarium displays with a team of our Guest Experience staff. As you travel through an empty aquarium at your own pace, our expert staff will not only wow you with incredible creature facts but also pass around fascinating objects to give your group the opportunity to stroke a real sea turtle shell, inspect an alligator’s teeth and discover what real shark skin feels like.

In order to give your group this exclusive access these sessions are limited to 9am on off-peak, weekday mornings. £2.00 per pupil (plus admission).
