Brighton Dolphinarium

Welcome to the site! (Still under construction-merging with old site)

Did you know that dolphins and whales we were once kept in British Zoos and Aquaria?

Take a look around the site to find out more!

N.B: Most people believe that the disapearance of dolphinaria in the UK was due to laws making their display illegal, when infact the reason for their decline was a new law stating minimum tank sizes. Many tanks/pools hadn't been updated in years or were originally swimming pools- a total refurbishment would have proved to be far too expensive!

Hope you enjoy your visit!
