Birthday Party Information

The Lake District Coast Aquarium has proven over the years to be a valuable educational resource as well as being a fun and exciting day out! Our guided tours offer a unique experience where you can observe and engage with many different species of fish; we have over 50 different species ranging from those native to the Solway to those inhabiting warmer climates.

What it involves...


There is free coach parking on the large pay & display carpark as well as free parking for smaller coaches in our private carpark by the Adventure Playground.
