Product Description

Summary legal statement:
To facilitate the re-opening of the Lakes Aquarium we have implemented enhanced health and safety measures and followed Government advice for the safety of our staff and guests including conducting a full Covid Secure Risk Assessment.

We are limiting the number of people who can visit so that we can safely manage people and enabling social distancing between visitors, and between visitors and staff.

For a full list of the measures please see our website or ask any member of our staff.

However there remains an inherent risk of exposure to Covid19 in any public place where people are present which cannot be entirely eliminated. Covid19 is a contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Consequently, it is imperative that all those visiting the Lakes Aquarium behave responsibly and respect the measures that we have put in place. Please do not visit the Lakes Aquarium if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid19 or have any underlying health conditions or are otherwise vulnerable in any way that may put you at risk.

In the absence of any negligence or breach of duty by us, visiting the Lakes Aquarium is entirely at your risk.

Please help us to keep each other healthy.

For further information please see our Covid19 guidance available on our website or ask any member of our staff for assistance.
