Stuck for indoor plans during the holidays? We’ve got you covered all summer long!

From 19th July-1st September, join our Crew for a spectacular summer with ‘Don’t Worry, Beach Happy’! Help us celebrate the fantastic coastline that is right on our doorstep, and home to some of the world’s best Jurassic and Cretaceous geology! 

Take part in our new interactive Treasure Trail! Spot the clues around the aquarium to uncover a hidden message, and be entered for a chance to win a special summer prize bundle!

Discover fascinating facts about our Yorkshire coastline with daily presentations at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, with a focus on a different beach each week! Learn about some of the gems of our Yorkshire coast and hear all about our top picks for fossil hunting, rockpooling and more. If history is your interest, then come along and hear tales of historical folklore; there’s something for everyone!

Enjoy summer-themed photo opportunities and face-painting outside (weather permitting!)

Pick up a tasty ice-cream treat from our café or shop, and spend some time in the sunshine on our outdoor picnic area.

Our ‘Don’t Worry, Beach Happy’ event is included within your standard admission; no additional booking is required. Visitors are highly advised to book their visit in advance. 

Hope to ‘sea’ you soon!
