Tour the tanks at twilight with a sleepover in front of shark-infested waters
In a nutshell
Do fish sleep? This is the perfect opportunity to finally put to bed all those awkward questions your kids have about life beneath the waves. The National Marine Aquarium (NMA) is now opening its doors at night so you can take in the rarely seen, nocturnal goings on in the UK’s biggest aquarium attraction.
Best thing about it
The fact that you and your kids can bed down in front of the Atlantic Ocean tank – the deepest in the UK, and populated with lemon, sand tiger and nurse sharks, as well as an array of rays. So don’t forget your sleeping bags, pillows and toothbrushes. Airbeds are a must for a comfortable night, too. But leave your PJs at home – go for something more practical, like shorts and a T-shirt.
