We had a lovely day out at Bluereef Aquarium in Tynemouth today. It’s a year since we were last there and this time it was lovely to see them both interested in all the fish
We first visited Blue Reef Aquarium at Tynemouth back in 2010 when MissB was around 6 months old and we’ve been back a couple of times since. It’s one of those places where the older your children get the more they get out of it but even at 6 months MissB still enjoyed her visit.
Right practical things first, there are good baby changing facilities in the entrance area along with a cafe with plenty of high chairs. We took the Phil and Teds explorer with us on our last visit and found it easy to move it around. Access is good and I can’t see us having any problems when we go back with the double buggy. Parking is probably the trickiest part, we park on the promenade and it can be difficult finding a space at times but we usually manage to get one on our first drive past.
On our first visit we decided to use the baby carrier to take MissB around so she could get a better view of everything.
Our next visit was when MissB was around 15 months old, and MasterB 5 weeks old so we took the Phil and Teds with us. MissB got a lot more out of the experience this time although MasterB just slept the entire time as 5 week old babies tend to
MissB was also fascinated with watching the seals this time round
There is also a small outside play area near the seal enclosure which allowed MissB to test out her newly found walking skills
Now I have to admit this isn’t the cheapest day out at £8.30 per adult (children under 3 free) but it is one of those places which we will no doubt return to as there is so much to see and do. Definitely worth a visit if you are ever in the area
