Group Bookings

Book your School Visit to the Best Educational Day Out in the South West

The Oceanarium brings your group face to face with a vast array of creatures from the furthest reaches of the globe – from clownfish to sharks and stingrays. An all weather experience, suitable for all ages and abilities, the Oceanarium is ideally situated on Bournemouth’s beautiful seafront


All pre-booked groups of 10 or more people receive special discounted rates. In addition to these discounted rates, we also offer one free leader/group organiser with every group (must be at least 10 paying people).

There is a coach drop-off point situated by the BIC, approximately one minutes walk from the Oceanarium. The nearest coach park is at Queen’s Road Car Park – situated just off the Wessex Way (under a mile from the Oceanarium). For further information click here and here.

After your visit allow time to enjoy our beachfront Offshore Café with breathtaking views cross the bay, and time to shop in The Cove for the ideal gift or souvenir.

To receive discounted rates, groups must pre-book 1 week (minimum) before the date of your visit. Groups larger than 20 will be divided into more manageable numbers, with staggered entry into the Oceanarium of at least 10 minutes.

If looking to book a group visit at the weekend or during school holidays we have a maximum 20-person policy in place and can only accommodate self-guided bookings from 3:00pm during these times. This is to ensure health and safety during our busiest periods.
