Why book a group ticket?

We welcome groups of 10 or more people (no upper limit) at any time and they’re a great way to save money on large parties. Perfect for day visits, city stopovers and short breaks, the National Marine Aquarium is the ideal destination for a special day out. Visits can be tailored to suit all ages and interests and can occupy a group from one hour to a full day. If you’d like to make the day extra special, you can book one of our expert guides for an hour-and-a-half in-depth hosted tour.

Package one – £13.00 per person
