Join us for Aquarium After Dark This Weekend!

This weekend SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's is hosting its Aquarium After Dark event, this is your chance to experience Kelly Tarlton's like never before! Explore the Sub-Antarctic penguin zone in a brand new light under the romantic tones of an Antarctic sunset and watch our penguins settle in for the night. Hear exclusive talks about how SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's care for the penguins during the change of seasons, learn about their daily routines and what it is like being a penguin keeper for a day.

Once night falls for the penguins you are then free to wander the rest of the aquarium where you can experience the new Amazing Creations zone, see the city skyline lit up from Stingray Bay and come face to face with our incredible sharks in the Shark Tunnel. The evening will include animal feeds and talks plus fun competitions and giveaways just in time to celebrate World Penguin Day on Tuesday 25 April.

This event is limited capacity and will start at 5pm with last entry at 6pm to ensure maximum penguin playtime!
