Blue Planet Aquarium,

Ellesmere Port,


CH65 9LF

Aquamazing is the only way to describe Britains biggest and best aquarium. Sharks, piranhas, divers, octopus, stingrays, poison frogs, seahorses, lobsters, snakes, lizards, giant catfish, crocodilians and a multitude more await you at the Blue Planet aquarium. There's also free face painting, free car parking and free behind the scenes tours, touchpools, interaction with divers, our conservation and whale rescue programs, films, quizzes and a guidebook to help you discover the thrills of aquaventuring. See you soon.


My personal welcome..: A warm, tropical welcome from all at the Blue Planet aquarium. We'll enjoy giving you the day out that recently got us voted 'Best family attraction in Cheshire' and 'Best new visitor attraction' in the UK 1999.


We pride ourselves on being more than an aquarium, with a brand new simulator ride and lots of interaction. You'll be submerged in a flooded forest of the mighty Amazon, soar high in a Scottish glen, crash through the coastal surf and glide among sharks and stingrays on a Caribbean reef.


Fun, colour, danger and weirdness - whatever you want, it's here waiting.
