My husband and I mostly booked a weekend in Hull to visit The Deep. We were not disappointed and enjoyed it every bit as much as all the kids! The penguins were so funny and could have watched them for hours. Great value for money and would highly recommend to all

I thought the displays were very informative, the fish were interesting, the penguin pool wasnt as big as Id hoped. I think it was quite expensive for what we got as we'd travelled a good distance and stayed overnight to accommodate our visit. The cafe was a bit grubby around the edges. I really wanted to like this place more... More

Visited in 2010. I think I had hoped this would be much larger than it was and take longer to get around and keep the kids happy. The kids were a bit unimpresseed but not as much as us adults after a 1.5 hour drive! I love aquariums but have visited much more impressive ones. The National sealife centre in... More

liked- everything, disliked - nothing (& I'm not usually a fan of 'theme park' stuff). It had wow-factor constantly & loads to interest really young children. You could spend ages just watching those fish (or stamping on virtual jellyfish if you're under-5!)

Visited with my 18-year old son, on spec, looking for something to fill a few hours and we both thoroughly enjoyed The Deep. Very well laid out and interesting; we were able to take our time and view everything at our own pace.

On our first holiday with the 5 month old we found the deep the be a perfect attraction. Our little one was keep amused and entertained by all the bright colours. All paths wide and pushchair friendly, same can be sure be said of the change facilities. Used Clubcard tokens and no difficulty getting entry tickets. Will return when next... More

The opportunity to get close up to creatures of the deep and view them from above, below or side on without getting wet was great. All the staff looked happy and were attentive to their task and customers. The restaurant/café served good value, generous portions of food cooked on the premises. £5 for a large portion of quiche, chips and... More

I like going to the deep you don't feel like you're being push around and the amount of sea life they have is fantastic.

Dull day, mid week, well and truely brightened up by a trip to The Deep with my two year old. Sat staring at the vast tanks of amazing marine species beats the usual trip to the park any day! We took it at a very relaxed pace stopping at the cafe for a cuppa and then whizzed back in to... More
