Bristol Aquarium’s Café and Shop Re-opening!

We are pleased to announce we’ll be opening our café and shop from 12th April!
In line with government guidelines, the aquarium itself will remain closed, however we will be opening our café and shop as well as offering children’s birthday parties!
Café and Shop
The café and shop will be open everyday 10:30am – 4:00pm (weather dependant on weekdays, always open on weekends and bank holidays). The shop will be open for visitors to browse and enjoy, while the café will provide take out food and drink services, as well as offering some outdoor seating for table service.
Why not enjoy a stroll around the Harbourside and pop in to Bristol Aquarium during your visit!
The gift shop is set up with a one way flow, guiding visitors through the huge variety of marine-inspired toys, jewellery, stationary and more!
Pop along to our C-Shed Café for a bite to eat – we offer hot and cold food, including pizzas, flat breads and children’s lunch boxes. Wash it down with a hot drink from our Lavazza range of coffees or enjoy a cold drink fresh from the fridge. We also offer a variety of Cornish scoop ice creams and a selection of ice lollies for you to choose from and enjoy!

Children’s Birthday Parties
Children’s Birthday parties are also available, plus until the aquarium re-opens* your party will get EXCLUSIVE use of the aquarium, all to yourselves!
Birthday parties are 2hours long and include:
• One hour EXCLUSIVE use of the aquarium as part of a guided tour with a fishy expert!
• Fish feeding experience
• Interactive workshop
• Party food and drink in a themed area (shark, pirate or mermaid theme)
