Mermaid Finale

A real–life mermaid* is making her last guest appearances at Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium this weekend, as part of a fun for all ages holiday programme.


The Kelly Tarlton's Mermaid has been the star of our school holiday campaign, and by popular demand she is back for the last time this weekend 26 - 27 July.


Daily Mermaid Appearances! 

See Bex make her aquatic guest appearance at 10.30am and 1.30pm in the Shipwreck Discovery tank. Also on offer around the aquarium are Disney’s The Little Mermaid themed activities including a mermaid quiz trail, and a mermaid grotto activity zone, featuring reading, face painting from 2 - 4pm on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 July, and fun mermaid crafts.


*Bex the Mermaid is an aquarist at Kelly Tarlton’s who combines her love of the ocean and conservation of sea life with a passion for mermaids.
