Birthdays at Blue Reef Tynemouth

Children can enjoy a birthday party with a difference at Blue Reef Tynemouth.

Tired of soft plays and old town halls? Blue Reef Aquarium in Tynemouth is offering an alternative, which is safe, educational and fun for all of the family.

Birthday Parties at Blue Reef promise to be an amazing experience for any young animal lover and can be tailored to your child’s interests.

Your party package includes a bespoke guided tour with a chance for the birthday boy or girl to feed our friendly otters. This is followed by a birthday tea, touch-pool session and a party bag for every child – we take care of everything; all you need to bring is the cake!

Don’t worry about mam and dad as they can come along for free. (One free adult for every 5 children)

The fun doesn’t stop at the end of the party either; as the birthday child can visit for free all year.

To find out more, or to book your child’s party, call us on 0191 258 1031.


All you need for a party is a minimum of 10 children (maximum 20 children). One adult is admitted free with every five full paying children. Your party package includes a Guided Tour followed by birthday tea, a touchpool with some rockpool creatures and a party bag for every child.  The Birthday child will also receive a Years Free Membership!

A very special once in a lifetime opportunity for the birthday child to meet our sea lions! ask staff for more details.

Pirates Party

Join the Blue Reef Pirate Raiding Party! Each child will be presented with an eye patch and hat before joining Blue Reef's very own Pirate King or Queen for a guided tour. Meet mysterious creatures from the deep and learn all about pirates!

After the tour enjoy a hearty pirate's birthday meal and take home a bag of treasure!

Mermaids/Princess Party

Here's a great way for little mermaids to celebrate their birthdays. A Blue Reef marine expert will lead a tour of the aquarium and introduce the amazing sea creatures that have inspired some of the most famous children's stories, legends, myths and fairytales. (Boys can be pirates!)

Then everyone can sit down for a fairytale birthday tea and collect their themed take home bag.

Please call us on 0191 2581031 to book or for more information
