Posted on: 25 May 2018

Plunge your watery way into the Bank Holiday weekend with The Big Blue at Bristol Aquarium which runs from Saturday 26th May to Sunday 3rd June 2018.


Family-friendly and the perfect day out for the whole family, The Big Blue will be awash with a raft of fun, hands-on experiments, let you get up close with a shimmering menagerie of stunning tropical fish, and give you an exhilarating insight into the mysterious, enthralling Big Blue itself. 

Bristol Aquarium

Bristol Aquarium has more than 40 naturally-themed displays and thousands of incredible sea creatures including puffer fish, tropical sharks, seahorses and those terrifying, toothsome terrors of the deep, piranhas. The Underwater Tunnel is about as immersive as it gets when it comes to exploring aquatic species (they're literally swimming over your head), and its panoply of tropical fish come from UK waters and around the world. 


Throw in a massive botanical house brimming with hundreds of exotic plants and trees, The Urban Jungle (the only one of its kind in any UK aquarium), and regular displays such as The Sunken Ship, The Mighty Amazon and The Learning Lab, and what you've got is one of the most exciting, engaging and educational family days out in Bristol.
