Key information

  • We require a minimum one week notice period for bookings
  • *We require any dietary requirements either on the day of booking or at least two days before the party date
  • Pre-payment is required when booking

Before the party:

  • Please let us know any dietary requirements for the group. At least 3 working days before the party so our catering team can make the suitable adjustments.
  • You can confirm the number of children attending and the party has been paid for in full.
  • Please encourage parents and guardians that are dropping children off to use the fast track entrance to the Aquarium. The retail team will be aware there is a party going on and will assist to get the group together.

During the party:

  • You are led by an Aquarium party host who will deliver a fun and engaging party.
  • The 2 free of charge accompanying adults act in loco parentis and are therefore responsible for the behaviour and comfort needs of the group i.e. toilet breaks, headcounts between rooms etc.
  • Additional adults are welcome to attend, but will need to have a valid year entry to the Aquarium, or pay the day entry fee. Whilst we allow extra adults to attend, we encourage this number to be no greater than 4, to keep the group size limited whilst moving around the Aquarium.
  • The food will be served by a member of the Café team, and will include unlimited squash, a cold finger buffet and the opportunity for cake. Please note that we do not provide cake, but you are welcome to bring in your own.

After the party:

  • You will be taken to the shop to meet the parents/guardians collecting children. The birthday child and 2 free accompanying adults are welcome to explore the Aquarium for the rest of the day.

Whilst we are happy for you to bring additional decorations to decorate the party spaces, we ask that you refrain from using balloon or single-use plastic decorations. This is part of the Aquarium’s wider Plan for Plastics, a scheme run by the Plymouth Waterfront Partnership.

If you have any additional queries, then please let us know:
