Tickets bought on-line. Quickly received tickets upon arrival. Excellent interactive displays. Plenty of well informed crew (staff)

It's quite a few years since I last visited The Deep ..I was quite surprised that it was much the same apart from the penguins..The viewing windows are narrow and crowded with people waiting to have a look..you find yourself pushing the little ones to the front to get a turn?or lifting them up, which is back breaking..Once you have...

The Deep is a good family day out. As others have said, it is wise to take a picknick with you. Interesting exhibits so in order to enjoy them all, I suggest arriving before noon. TWO IMPORTANT POINTS: 1. Use the TomTom postcode (HU9 1TU) if you are using a satnav. The other postcode on the website sends you to... More

Expensive tickets and extra pay and display parkingplace. Only parking for 4 hours. No value for money and very touristic.

I visited the Deep during one afternoon whilst in town with my husband who was on business, primarily to see their penguins as I adore them. Penguins aside, though the visit was very entertaining. The Deep is a vast building, architecturally fascinating from the outside as well as inside. The larger tanks are very impressive, though the water clarity was... More

Pre-recordered message gave us post code for a housing estate!If I hadn't got the tickets for free I would have gone home.Eventually found it.Too busy for what little they have to offer.As for the 2pm show...too many children un supervised blocking the view of the tanks.Best thing was the charity coin roller on the way out...honest !

Stoic staff, tired displays, lots of things not working, cafe closed early and penguins looked as bored as us!! Not our best afternoon out and not in a rush to go back. Gift shop was the highlight.

After getting in fairly quickly. Well it was 10.30, we had the obligatory photo taken to pay for when we left. It was then the first shock hit me.There is no warning that to get to the exhibition hall you need to climb 4 flights of stairs. There is a lift but there's no warning about what you're about to...

We went as a party of 5 including my parents and my children 5 & 8. I had high hopes after looking at the website, but felt it didn't live up to my expectations. The price was quite steep and I was glad I had used tesco vouchers and not paid the £48 it would have cost us. I know... More
