I love this place, I love being able to go and read all the information boards and look at the different marine life. I've still yet to go since they got the penguins but I do plan on going shortly.

Firstly, I would reccomend you get there early as parking can be difficult. It is £2 for 4 hours. Secondly I would recommend you go into the aquarium early or during dinner hours as that seems to be quieter. The food in the cafe is alright - the portions are a little small for the price, but it was good... More

A very up to date aquarium, very few exhibits out of order and every type of seacreature you can envisage. We especially enjoyed the touching pools where the kids can touch starfish and anenomes (supervised of course), the big tank in the centre of the building and the stairs next to it where you can see all sorts of amazing...

The first time we visited The Deep we were enjoying it so much we bounced around really quickly and before we knew it we were at the end. So we learnt our lesson the second time we went and took our time fully looking at everything we could. Really nice day out, perfect for all ages, nice facilities. Highly recommended!

First visit for me, a 50 something,,, and it was school holidays and a Saturday. However, it was brilliant. I hardly noticed all the children. Really made me want to do some snorkelling. There were only a couple of the interactive bits not working, which is a feat in it's self at the end of the summer break. On the... More

This was not the first time we have been to the Deep, although it will be the last. The amount of sea life has reduced massively, and the whole place seems to be going to pot. We had breakfast in the cafe, the place had only just opened for the day and yet there were chips on the floor, obviously... More
