Living World Aquatic & Pet Centre took over the site at Tenterden Garden Centre from Swallows Aquatics in October 2013. With over 40 stocked tropical and marine tanks, a designated coral bay, specialist reptile area, pet and pond products the Centre has fast become known for professional, expert service and customer support.

In February 2015 following on from the success at Tenterden an aquatic department was opened at Canterbury Garden Centre, in what was the compost and aggregate store. Since this time Living World at Canterbury has established itself as a premium supplier for tropical and pond dry stock and livestock, aquarium and pond plants, and aquatics expertise.


Our teams at Living World have over 30 years’ experience between them, and it is this experience and enthusiasm that best place our staff to advise you on all things aquatic.

Whether a first time fish-keeper or a veteran in the hobby we can help and advise you on anything from the best aquarium set up to maintaining a healthy aquarium.

At Living World our staff are able to advise and provide answers for the vast majority of pond and aquarium queries. From pond volumes to filtration advice and fish food to stocking densities, we are supremely confident that there is nothing within our field of experience that we will not be able to help you with.

We also offer a free water testing service, RO water, maintenance and treatment advice alongside strong professional knowledge of all things aquatic.

With the demand so high for some of our rarer fish, we were frequently approached about the possibility of shipping fish to our customers – as a result, we offer timed delivery of our fish throughout England for just £20 per box and we are happy to provide a quote for post codes elsewhere within the UK.

All fish are packaged professionally and provided with enough water, air and heat for them to be perfectly comfortable on their overnight transport.

Our Special Order Service allows you the opportunity to source almost any fish through us and don’t worry we only work with regulated, credible and licensed breeders and importers. Should you require any further information please do contact a member of our team.
