Back by popular demand is our annual Christmas trip to Belgium!
With the cancellation of last years trip and restrictions being lifted this year we are going back to Belgium for a weekend of diving and Christmas Markets.
Nemo 33 was the World's first deepest pool for 10 years. Although it is no longer the deepest, don't let that put you off! It's still great fun, with a 35m deep tube and several areas at different depths it's still a fun experience and a box ticked.
TODI Aquarium is an old coal depot and was transformed into a 10m deep Aquarium that's 36m in diameter and holds approximately 5,000 tropical freshwater fish. It holds approximately 6.5 million litres of water and is maintained at a temperature of 23*C.
