The Oceanarium displays are situated on two floors with lift access, as well as stairs. Wide passageways are throughout the displays for ease of access. There are some steps within the Oceanarium but all of these are clearly marked and alternative routes are available. Disabled toilet facilities, the Offshore Café and Cove gift shop are all located on the ground floor.
PUSHCHAIRS & BUGGIES
Please note: In wet, rainy conditions when the Oceanarium is likely to be busier than normal, we advise visitors to leave pushchairs at home. However if this is not possible, you will be asked to fold down your pushchair and leave in the pushchair park (unsupervised area) or alternatively, take pushchairs around the aquarium with you.
Unfortunately, due to the seafront location, we do not have our own car park. Please find below details of Blue Badge Parking in Bournemouth.
Badge holders may park free of charge and without time limit at on street “pay and display” machines unless a local traffic order is in force. Signs explaining any restrictions will be in place. The Blue Badge must be displayed.
There are disabled parking spaces available in the following town centre locations.
Please note that at some of these locations a time restriction may apply during certain hours. Please check the signs and display your disabled badge.
In car parks operated by Bournemouth Borough Council, badge holders must pay unless the VEHICLE is tax exempt. The Road Fund Licence will show nil and the word disabled.
If you hold a disabled blue badge you may park in a disabled bay. Please purchase a pay and display ticket and clearly display your disabled badge.
