The Seaward Hotel » Beach front Hotel & Guest Accommodation in Weston-super-Mare

The Weston-Super-Mare SeaQuarium was opened in 1995, and was placed upon the first seaside pier to be built in Great Britain for over 85 years.


Situated on the beach, the aquarium is surrounded by 3 miles of sand along the coast of Somerset, with panoramic views across the estuary of Wales. 

The centre contains an amazing underwater tunnel, providing visitors with a closer look into the depths of our oceans. With sharks, rays and other creatures swimming gracefully past, just inches away. It doesn’t stop there, with over 25 displays throughout the aquarium, visitors can see the beauty and terror of the oceans creatures, from the severn estuary to the wonders of the rainforest rivers. 

Our ray zone features an open top display that allows visitors to take a closer look at these graceful creatures as they swim to the surface. You will also have the opportunity to gaze underwater, as the sides of the display are made of a see-through moulded material called acrylic. 

Live presentations occur at intervals throughout the day, as do our feeding demonstrations. Please listen for the show announcements.
After your marine journey, why not relax in our seaview tea room with spectacular views of the severn estuary. Please remember, our gift shop is your last stop for a momento of your visit. and, just in case you missed something on your first voyage, you can start your journey all over again!
