Hastings Aquarium

Hastings Aquarium is easy to find, located on the idyllic Hastings coastline, surrounded by fishing boats and just a stone’s throw from the picturesque old town.

Step inside to head below the waves and discover what’s roaming our oceans. From our own native UK waters to the tropical seas across the world we have a hugely diverse collection of sea life for you to admire. Get up close to freshwater species and enjoy a break on dry land as you explore our amazing Jungle Room filled with incredible reptiles!

Our underwater tunnel is an immersive experience, with tropical sharks, rays and colourful fish swimming over your head – get up close!

We welcome both educational groups and those just looking for a fun trip out! – Enjoy an educational guided tour for your school group with one of our aquarist experts, or simply attend our daily talks and feeds. There really is something for everyone, whatever the weather!

Join us from 10am daily and complete your visit by enjoying fresh produce in our relaxing on-site café or grab some ocean themed memorabilia from our gift shop!
