Bristol AquariumBristol Aquarium

Dive into the ocean and discover the wonders of the deep in our colourful aquarium, right in the heart of Bristol. Explore more than 40 naturally-themed displays and spot the thousands of amazing aquatic creatures, including tropical sharks, rays, seahorses, puffer fish, piranhas, and so many more. Wander through our Underwater Tunnel to watch our fascinating marine life swim over your head.

We house a mix of tropical fish from around the world, as well as many that are native to the UK’s waters, so you can get a better understanding of the creatures that live on home shores and further afield.

We’re also the only aquarium in the UK to feature a giant botanical house, known as our Urban Jungle. You can find hundreds of 

exotic plant and tree species from around the world here, as well as our open-topped Bay of Rays and our Mighty Amazon pools, home to terrapins and freshwater fish.

Author's Review

I once said that “Once you have visited one aquarium you have visited them all” . I have to say with a red face, that statement just isn't true. Bristol Aquarium is a huge testimony to that admission. With a huge seafaring heritage, the Bristol Aquarium couldn't be better placed, and their undersea tunnel isn't quite like any I have seen before. I also loved the fact that here at this aquarium it isn't all about how nice or how great these fantastic and amazing creatures are, they also are about education and helping us understand the many ecosystems we have in the world and how our worldly actions have detrimental consequences for life under the sea. The Bristol Aquarium is abundant with colour and their huge Coral Sea display is the envy of many aquariums throughout the country, and it was so clear to see that every member of staff enjoys their job, Refreshing!
