Self-Guided Tours

Dive into a self-guided tour!

Our underwater classroom brings the living world unit to life, giving students an unparalleled opportunity to experience our amazing marine life for themselves. Different zones make it easy to explore and there's information along the way to help your students learn more about our incredible creatures.

We have also created a range of guides to help you navigate your way through the aquarium with fun, educational facts you can share with your students along the way. There are four options, available when you book, focused on Classification/Adapatations, Conservation, Habitats and LifeCycles. See below for examples!
