V.I.P Behind the Scenes Tours

Key Information

When? Our V.I.P Behind the Scenes Tours run once a day on every day! Happening 11:30pm on weekends and 3pm weekdays.

Where? Behind the Scenes at the UK’s largest aquarium!

Who? Anyone over the age of 8 years old


The National Marine Aquarium is the nation’s largest public aquarium and an independent conservation charity. This means we do things a little differently and have some pretty special behind the scenes areas. The only problem is nobody can see the incredible things that happen behind closed doors. That is, until now!

Our tours will take you into the depths of the Aquarium to see just what it takes to keep 4,000 animals happy and healthy.

Each Behind the Scenes tour will visit the key working areas our expert staff use every day to keep the building running. You’ll get access to previously unseen rooms and be accompanied by two personal guides to make sure you see everything we have offer. In a whirlwind one hour tour we hope you’ll learn about our work whilst having fun and enjoying the VIP treatment.

Any other information

We always want to be open and honest in everything we do, as well as inspiring the next generation of marine biologists. So if you’d like to know how we clean the nation’s biggest tank, how we feed the most sharks and rays in the UK, and how we perform surgery on our animals then why not join us for this very special venture. Our amazing new V.I.P Behind the Scenes Tours take place once a day at 11:30am on weekends and 3:00pm on weekdays.
