Seafloor Explorers dug deep to learn about the Thames Estuary

Our first Roadshow finished on Sunday after a hugely successful week. Nearly 25,000 people met our staff at London Aquarium and Explored the Seafloor for themselves, getting hands on and up close to the fascinating undersea world of the Thames Estuary.

Our visitors really enjoyed being able to touch artefacts from under the sea and learn about animals and their habitats. Many were surprised to learn that undersea areas around Britain today were once dry land where mammoths roamed and huge rivers gouged out deep channels, now visible on the seafloor. The touch boxes were a great hit but lots of adults were too scared to put their hands in!

Our team are hard at work preparing for the next Roadshow, which explores the archaeology, ecology and geology of the South Coast. Explore it for yourself at Brighton Sea Life centre between the 19th and the 27th June.
