We have visited many "sea life" themed venues and always enjoy the fish and mammals we get to see in their near natural environment but this is one of the better ones and we especially enjoyed seeing the penguins excellent helpful staff, good parking and easy to find your way around

We visited The Deep on our last morning of a short trip to Yorkshire. The attraction is very nicely laid out with plenty of interactive displays for children to try, and lots of colourful fish and amphibians, plus some Gentoo penguins. It saves a few pounds to book in advance online, it was just under £35 for a family ticket... More

Been today for first time in years and still not improved. Paid just over £30 for 2 adults and one 11 year old which is not cheap. On top you have to pay for parking and if you want a guide book. The place was really busy and spent twenty minutes queuing. On entering and starting to view the exhibitions... More

We went to The Deep aquarium in Hull. There was me and four kids and I paid just over £40 for a family of 5 ticket online. Family of 4 tickets are slightly cheaper than this online. The tickets online are generally cheaper than the pay at the door ones so I would recommend purchasing online. You have to queue... More

The Deep is a big attraction for Hull, and it look very impressive from the outside. Marine and fish enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy it, as will most adults and older/teenage children. I do find my young children do get bored, and are not very stimulated by the attraction no matter how much I try and involve them. They love the... More

We do try to provide something to entertain all ages and although I can appreciate smaller children cannot control many of our interactive stations or read information screens, we do have plenty of visual stimulants, hands on area and soft play to help keep them entertained. Hopefully you will keep on visiting with them as... More
