Anglesey Sea Zoo aims to provide a fun and educational experience for groups, schools and individuals of all ages, within a family friendly atmosphere.
All the marine animals in our care are native British species, of which you will discover over 60. These can be found all around Britain from the warmer southern waters of areas such as Cornwall to the cold refreshing waters of Northern Scotland. As you wander around you will find information not only for all the animals, but also on important topics such as marine litter and invasive species.
We believe in providing value for money to all our guests, and aim to offer as much variety as possible to people of all ages that visit the Anglesey Sea Zoo. We recommend that visitors allow themselves several hours to see everything on site.
The marine biological staff at the Anglesey Sea Zoo are experienced educators, and are able to offer a rewarding, informative, and above all enjoyable experience for all ages and levels from nursery to university. We can provide everything you might need whilst here from simple worksheets to full guided tours, as well as seashore safaris and interactive talks and lectures from our marine biologists.

Codes Of Behaviour
The Anglesey Sea Zoo's staff place great emphasis on customer care. In return all that we ask is for groups to arrive punctually (or to try to let us know if you can't), with well behaved children who will respect their surroundings and the living creatures they'll encounter.
