To view life in the deep a great place to visit. A café/restaurant reasonably priced and your cost of car parking can be redeemed against your bill.

Always been our family favourite. You can spend the whole day here which makes it good value for money. The café is also excellent which is rare at a tourist venue

Not worth traveling here for, but if your in the area worth a visit. Once you paid you get in for 12 months free, but they will hound you for donations each time you visit though !

We visit 'The Deep' at least four times a year as my 7 year old love this place and I usually take her friend along and we make a day out of it. The exhibits are good, chronologically organised and the kids love it. Especially the 'ice wall', play area, walk-through-aquarium-tunnel and the restaurant. The food is usually good and... More

The Deep has lots to offer. I wouldn't go out of my way to return but if I was visiting Hull I would go back, especially as I have been told the new penguin en-closer is good.

This was my first visit to an aquarium for several years and I was very impressed. I would advise arriving early to avoid the queues and school parties as it can get quite crowded at times. The displays are very good. They now have gentoo penguins but the section is a bit plastic looking and the view points could be... More

The Deep is an interesting place to visit with plenty of exhibits to see. they have a penguin display which you can view from above and below the water line. you can see the penguins swimming around and diving below the water.

A wonderful experience. A very busy attraction but you could still see all of the exhibits - some very clever designs allowing you to get really as close to the fish, rays, sharks without actually getting wet. The only criticism is that, due to the design of the building, you have to reach the upper level in order to descend... More

Thank you for your review, I am pleased to read you enjoyed your visit to The Deep. Our lifts are designed to hold a very large number of visitors at once and are usually more than sufficient, however obviously on very busy days as such the day you visited, queues for the lifts can build up. Hopefully we will see... More
