Discovering wonders of the deep at Bristol Aquarium

Sebby Aquarium

Back in November, we spent a weekend in Bristol visiting Kian who is now at university in the city. During our visited we enjoyed some of the city’s top tourist attractions including Bristol Zoo, We the Curious, SS Great Britain and Bristol Aquarium. Bristol Aquarium is just a stones throw from We the Curious on the harbourside, so we parked at Millenium Square and decided to make a day of it. Bristol Aquarium is home to 40 naturally-themed displays where you can spot thousands of amazing aquatic creatures, including tropical sharks, rays, seahorses, puffer fish, piranhas, and even a couple… Continue Reading “Discovering wonders of the deep at Bristol Aquarium”

Hearing Test We the Curious

All the way back in 2015 we spent a day in Bristol and enjoyed an afternoon at their science centre, then called @Bristol. The kids loved it so much, they have been asking to go back ever since. With Kian now at university in Bristol, we have the perfect excuse to visit the vibrant city more often, so headed West to take the kids to see their big brother for the weekend and their first request was to head back to the science centre, now called We the Curious. It may have had a change of name, but it is… Continue Reading “Learning Fun at We the Curious Science Centre in Bristol”
