St Andrews Aquarium


  • Within 1 Hour of the City
  • Outside the City

A wonderful opportunity for you and the family to get up close and personal with a superb range of marine creatures, including penguin, octopus, shark, ray and dwarf crocodile.

St Andrews Aquarium has been family owned and run since 1999, and we’re totally dedicated to the welfare of our animals. With more than 120 species on show every day, our animals are the superstars who make the aquarium such a fun, engaging day out for families.

Set in the cliffs overlooking St Andrews bay, our aquarium is a magical underwater world. When you visit us we’ll lead you into a world full of adventure, discovery, and education. You’ll get up close and personal with our octopus, sharks, spiders, seals, poison dart frogs, crocodiles, penguins, and so many more. You’ll be charmed by our fabulous meerkat family and get to meet some new members of the aquarium family – the adorably feisty marmosets!

There’s so much to learn about animals, habitats, and the impact of climate change as you make your way through the aquarium. You’ll leave with a stack of facts, a good coffee, and a nice toy from the gift shop.
