About

The Aquatic Design Centre has been designing, carrying out aquarium installations and maintenance for over 25 years. Established in 1985, we have been designing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining aquariums across Britain and growing ever stronger as UK’s largest aquatic specialists of aquarium and pond technology. 

You will see our work in landmark buildings, stores, restaurants, offices, museums, exhibitions, TV and movie sets, stylish homes and gardens. You will also see our International designs in North America and the Middle East. We work to the exacting standards demanded of architects, designers, film and TV industries, delivering on time and within budget.

Our workshop facility has expanded over the years. We now occupy an ex-farm two acre premises in Surrey, where our facilities enable us to manufacture on large scale glass aquariums, with storage facilities, and livestock holdings.

Our installations and maintenance services range from the simplest goldfish bowl or desk top aquarium to enormous living coral reef aquariums. From private homes to international headquarters and each solution is completed to the highest professional standard.

With over 1,500 aquarium installations under our supervision and an exclusive client list, we are the world’s leading experts in aquatic design.

Our fleet covers the whole of the United Kingdom and Ireland, servicing all types of aquariums, from the smallest gold fish tank, to large sustainable coral reef systems. The whole operation is controlled from our head office in London. There is also a 24 hour call out service available. Due to the large number of customers we serve, it enables us to offer unbeatable prices for a full service. If you have a project which requires an aquarium, pond installation or service please call us for free advice on how it might be taken forward.
