Things to do at Tynemouth Aquarium review

Close to the sea on the award-winning Longsands beach, Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear is the Tynemouth Aquarium. It has sharks, stingrays, daily seal shows, monkeys and other types of fish.

The aquarium has daily talks so that you can learn more about their animals. They have a river giants talk and feed three times a day, and a seal show twice a day (weather permitting). You can prebook when you arrive if you want to watch one of the presentations.

You can wander through the aquarium to see many different species from all over the world. Tanks include the tropical waters of the Caribbean and the UK’s native shores. From rays and coral reef fish to seals and tortoise, there is plenty to see. Their River Giants exhibit is brand new and takes you away to tropical rainforest and you will see giant fish, face to face. Some of their more popular tanks include cow nose rays, clownfish, lionfish and stonefish.

They can even host your child’s birthday parties. They also host annual events.
