Quiet at The Aquarium

Monday, May 27

Share:

As the largest Aquarium in the UK, we are dedicated to not only providing a captivating underwater experience but also ensuring that everyone feels welcome and included.

A few times a year we open our doors for a special two hour event after hours that allows families and people with autism and other sensory needs to enjoy our exhibits without the noise and distraction of our daily shows.

Visitors will be able to explore all of our exhibits without the normal daytime crowds, a more relaxed lighting, screens turned off and no daily shows, so the focus is truly on our amazing animals. The event is for people with additional needs.

Complimentary annual return passes are not valid for use on this type of event.

This event is for families or people with additional needs only. Please note that due to the range of sensory needs of other families attending this event, we cannot guarantee that the Aquarium will be quiet throughout the evening.
