At Tynemouth Aquarium, we offer many group packages to suit all age groups and abilities, with the aim to give these groups the opportunity to learn about the vibrant and endlessly fascinating marine life beneath the waves and in the oceans of the world.
We are home to over 40 living displays – from graceful stingrays and tropical sharks and seahorses – which bring the sheer variety of life in the deep closer to you.
You can check out our naturally-themed seal cove, which includes rocky haul-out areas and a whole host of other environmental-enrichment features that will ensure our curious and highly intelligent harbour seals are kept in conditions that are as close to their natural habitats as possible.
With our stunning Amazonian feature, you’ll also have the opportunity to step into the incredible world of the tropical rainforest and meet our colony of adorable monkeys; including tiny marmosets and comical-looking cotton-topped tamarins.
A group visit with us lasts for approximately three hours. You’ll have a set arrival time, exploring time, and an allocated slot for a Rockpool encounter, which will give your group the chance to come face-to-face with some of our weirdest and most wonderful creatures.
Your visit will also include lunchtime where you can enjoy your packed lunches at our cafe. Note that indoor dining area is available only in term time, and packed lunches are available from our cafe but pre-ordering is required at the time of booking. Similarly, souvenir packs are available upon request, or you’ll have time to browse our gift shop at the end of your visit.
