Food and Facilities
Relax in The Bistro’s contemporary setting, with spectacular views of Skegness seafront. From tempting light bites to hearty, wholesome fare that the whole family will enjoy to freshly-ground coffee and sumptuous sweet treats – there is sure to be something for everyone! All of our fish products are sustainably sourced, and we have gluten-free and vegetarian options available.
Please note only food purchased from our Bistro can be consumed in this venue.
Next stop is Coral Cave Soft-Play – our indoor children’s play area. Included in the price of your aquarium ticket, it is fun in all weathers and suitable for children up to the age of 12, with a dedicated area for toddlers – meaning there are things to do in Lincolnshire when it’s raining too!
Situated within our Bistro area, this means that grown-ups can make the most of a few moments’ peace while little legs wear themselves out!
We are committed to accessibility for all and have lift access to The Bistro and Soft-Play for those less mobile or with pushchairs.
We also have disabled toilets and baby change facilities on-site to make your visit go smoothly whatever your mobility level.
Talks & Education
The education and preservation of marine life is important to the future sustainability of our friends with fins.
At the aquarium, we have dedicated facilities for educational workshops and school trips with a special education room set aside. We also have a series of inspirational talks at regular times throughout the year and our wet lab is the perfect place to get up close and personal with aquatic creatures such as crabs and starfish and to learn more about our natural coastline.
You can get crafty in our very own Pirate School, where you can take part in “make your own" activities, have your face painted.* (Face painting is free for 16 and under and £2 for adults.)
After completing your visit to the aquarium you will find yourself steeped in marine merchandise galore – with gifts from as little as 50p you can be sure that there is something for even the smallest budget. From fridge magnets to sticky insects and hatching eggs, there really is something for everyone.
