An aquarium is always good fun, but with its huge range of sea life and shows, this one’s a must.
At the bottom of the sea
Since 1969, The New England Aquarium has been offering visitors the chance to closely observe marine species from the most exotic waters on the planet, from lionfish or a green anaconda to seadragons or a giant Pacific ocean octopus. Don’t miss out on the North Sea and Atlantic seals, manta rays, whales, turtles, sharks, lobsters, penguins and more! In total, the New England Aquarium is home to around 800 different species from all over the world. It makes for a great family day out and ideal for younger kids. Don’t miss out on the full programme of exhibitions and film screenings. The Aquarium is open from 9am to 5pm (6pm on Saturday and Sunday) and you’ll find it at number 1 Central Wharf.
