Tynemouth Aquarium is idyllically located on Long Sands beach front in Tynemouth and is just a 20 minute drive from Newcastle Upon Tyne city centre!

Step into our underwater oasis and get face to fin with our charming sea creatures. Whether they’re from our local shores or tropical seas, in the river shallows or from the deep depths of the ocean, there is so much to discover at Tynemouth Aquarium!

No visit is complete without a stop in our Bay and Laurel Restaurant, where you can enjoy fresh food and drinks, all with a panoramic view of the coastline. No need to pre-book, simply pop by as part of your visit!

PLUS! Meet some of the Harbour Seals from our local East coastline. We have our own Sea Hospital where we rescue, rehabilitate and wherever possible, release the seals back into the ocean.

If you’re local why not visit again and again
