Bristol Aquarium

Lonely Planet review

Bristol's harbourside aquarium has been newly renovated, with underwater habitats including a Bay of Rays, a Coral Sea, a Shark Tank and an Amazon River Zone. There's also an informative section about Britain's native habitats and an impressive underwater tunnel, as well as a new star resident, Velcro the Pacific Octopus. There's a £2 discount for buying in advance online.
