Our Aquarium is made up of seven main zones, with lots of different exhibits and animals found in each. The way our Aquarium is laid out means you start your journey in the local waters of Plymouth Sound.

The further you journey around the Aquarium, the further you journey around the world’s Ocean, finishing up in the stunning Great Barrier Reef.
