Type: Aquarium

Blue Reef is part of an exciting new generation of aquarium attractions designed to inspire deeper understanding and appreciation of the natural world. Go and discover all the fantastic creatures that live in our seas and oceans. The displays take you on an undersea tour; from the British coastline to faraway tropical reefs and lots more in between.

During your visit, you'll come face to face with incredible sealife with everything from giant crabs and lobsters to seahorses and tropical sharks and you'll get a chance to find out more about these creatures' amazing lives in over 40 naturally recreated displays.

Exhibits include sealife in all shapes, sizes and colours with interactive displays. There are otters, seals and a colony of monkeys in the Amazing Amazon display. Regular talks and feeding displays make the aquarium an unforgettable day out - whatever the weather.
