Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port is a 15 minute drive from The White Horse and is a great day out - a partacularly good place to go when the weather is misbehaving... It's right next to Cheshire Oaks designer retail park and only a few minutes from ten-pin bowling, a Vue cinema and plenty of popular restaurants.
The interior houses tanks, pools and submerged tunnels designed to take the visitor through different habitats of the marine environment. The main aquarium tank holds 4,000,000 litres and features a 71-metre underwater tunnel. Themed areas include Tropical Rivers, Lakes and Ponds, Where Land Meets the Sea, and Seas and Oceans. The aquarium contains many varieties of marine and freshwater fish, including more types of shark than anywhere else in Britain. It also keeps a variety of mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
