Situated on the striking North East coast Tynemouth Aquarium is the perfect attraction for when the rain interferes with your trip to the beach! Enjoy close encounters with hundreds of incredible aquatic creatures! Come face to face with everything from adorable seals to sharks, clownfish, seahorses and graceful stingrays. Meet the monkeys and reptiles in the stunning Amazonian feature!

A full programme of entertaining talks and feeding displays take place throughout the day including the amazing seal show. With ever changing displays, two visits are never the same. Tickets are valid all day, so get down to Tynemouth Aquarium for an undersea adventure.

Meet the River Giants at Tynemouth Aquarium, these giants can grow up to 130cm the size of an average 9 year old! The themed exhibit will take you away to a tropical rainforest, where you can experience the sights and sounds of a flooded forest.
