What we offer on a school trip
Portsmouth’s award-winning Blue Reef Aquarium is a great place for visitors of all ages to find out more about the wonders of the deep, whatever the weather.
The Aquarium is Fully Wheelchair Accessible and Blue Reef’s innovative displays, informative talks and feeding demonstrations will keep the family fully entertained.
At the aquarium’s heart is the giant ocean tank where an underwater tunnel offers incredibly close encounters with puffer fish, triggerfish and hundreds of vibrant tropical fish amid the beauty of a recreated coral reef. Over 40 other living displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep, from tropical sharks and stingrays to clown fish and playful otters.
Relax in the Driftwood Kitchen on site café stocked up with delicious refreshments, an outdoor splash pool and beach-inspired play area, and a marine-themed gift shop.
