Discover the wonders of the deep in the heart of the city! More than 40 naturally-themed displays are home to thousands of amazing aquatic creatures including tropical sharks, rays, seahorses, piranhas and so much more.

Bristol’s biggest aquarium is also the only aquarium in the UK to feature a giant botanical house showcasing hundreds of exotic plant and tree species from around the world.

Eight themed zones take you on a fascinating journey from the British coastline through warmer waters to exotic tropical seas. From the hidden world of UK coasts, you are transported to the beautiful ‘underwater gardens’ of the Mediterranean, tropical rainforests, mangrove pools and the stunning beauty of coral reefs - home to everything from seahorses and puffer fish to living corals and tropical sharks.

You can enjoy the closest of undersea encounters in an underwater walk-through tunnel through the reef, from inside a glass cavern and via bubble-helmet viewing points.

More than 40 other naturally-themed displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep from giant crabs and lobsters to jellyfish. Plus you can find Nemo, Dory and all their friends!
