VIP Behind the Scenes Tours

Normal admission applies, as the VIP Behind the Scenes Tour is a bolt on package. 

There is lots to see behind the scenes of the UK’s largest Aquarium. Discover undisclosed areas with our un-forgettable VIP Behind the Scenes tour experience. Discover how our world class animal husbandry and engineering teams look after 4000 marine animals keeping them happy and healthy, plus how we manage moving millions of litres of water.  Tours are 1 hour long, and booking in advance is essential.

We don’t want to give too much away, but you will learn about topics such as food preparation, keeping the tank water clean in our many exhibits big and small, the daily tasks of a biologist, and animal health treatments from our team and vets.

Please be aware that the V.I.P Behind the Scenes Tours are only available for ages 8+ due to the content and areas visited.
