Blue Reef Aquarium


Take the ultimate undersea safari at Blue Reef Aquarium. Enjoy close encounters with hundreds of amazing aquatic creatures. At the aquarium’s heart is a giant ocean display where you can walk through an underwater tunnel and come face to face with shoals of colourful fish.


Parking is available next to the aquarium in a pay-and-display council-operated car park. Rates vary at the council’s discretion. Please note that you must pay with coins, as the car park machines do not accept notes or card payments. Do ensure you have sufficient change before parking.

Food & Drink

Visit the coffee shop located within the aquarium to discover a simple and tasty menu. Enjoy freshly ground coffee in the form of a latte, cappuccino and more, as well as herbal teas and a large section of soft drinks. Purchase a slice of cake or maybe a muffin or freshly baked cookie. Enjoy baguettes with a selection of fillings or our delicious pizza range. Children have the choice of a healthy sea themed lunchbox or a delicious cheese pizza and garlic bread.
