About Us

The National Marine Aquarium is the largest public aquarium in the UK welcoming 300,000 visitors per year (including the 30,000 school students who engage with our innovative Just Add H2O Schools Programme). Our awe-inspiring exhibits, featuring marine animals from near and far, provide an environment that intrigues, inspires and motivates our visitors to engage with our conservation messages and hopefully do their bit to help protect the marine environment.

As a self funded charity we have a range of business pillars that support our charitable work and mission to connect people with our Oceans.

  • Consultancy: We offer consultancy on everything from evaluation to designs, install and management of aquaria.
  • Functions and Events: Book an event at a unique location. We can cater for everything from weddings to corporate banking events and even 90th birthday parties

Charitable Giving

As a charity we really value the support of our visitors, volunteers and partners, but equally we feel it is important for us to give back to our wider communities. With this in mind we donate more than £418,000 equivalent value of tickets each year, to enable more people to learn about our Oceans. This essentially breaks down to more than £300,000 of free child tickets, and £115,000 of adult and other tickets.
