Deal of the day - Free entry to Blue Planet Aquarium for over 60s

If, like me, you’re fascinated by everything that lives under the sea, you’ll snap up Blue Planet Aquarium’s offer of free entry to anyone aged over 60.

The freebie, which is valid on Tuesdays only until December 15, represents a saving of £14.50 off the usual concessions entry price.

Home to more than 100 living displays in six specially-themed areas, the Blue Planet Aquarium in Cheshire Oaks offers a whole world of underwater discovery.

At the aquarium’s heart is the incredible 3.8 million litre Caribbean Reef display, complete with 230ft underwater tunnel, which houses one of Europe’s largest collection of sharks – including three-metre-long sand tiger sharks (gulp).

Other displays are home to everything from mudskippers and archer fish to lionfish and moray eels. There are daily Aquatheatre shows where you can watch the divers as they feed the fish via a huge underwater viewing window.

Other exciting exhibits include seahorses, starfish, piranhas, snakes, freshwater turtles and otters in their spacious outdoor holt.

Blue Planet Aquarium is open daily from 10am. For more information, click here.
