From mountain-top to Morecambe Bay the award-winning Aquarium of the Lakes takes you on an amazing voyage of discovery.

More than 30 spectacular, naturally-themed habitats bring the natural history of the Lake District vividly to life.

Enjoy close encounters with hundreds of amazing creatures including trout, eels, pike, perch, giant crabs, rays and many more.

Come face to face with playful otters in their riverbank home, discover the mysterious life of a river after dark and take a closer look at Lakeland life in AquaQuest's educational activity centre.

Then enjoy the ultimate underwater thrill as you stroll along a recreated section of Windermere's lake-bed surrounded by surrounded by gigantic carp and the amazing diving ducks.

Explore the miniature world of the rockpool and see how many different creatures you can spot in the Seashore Discovery Zone before meeting the Aquarium's most popular residents - inquisitive rays and British sharks in the Morecambe Bay display.

Plasma screens, interactive displays and a spectacular cinema presentation provide an even deeper insight while the Aquarium's team of dedicated aquatic experts are on hand to answer all your questions.
