Having read the reviews about long queues we decided to get there when the place opened. This worked well and we didn't have to wait too long. It is a well planned attraction and I particularly want to mention the cafe. The food and drink was reasoably priced and there were some inexpensive healthy choices. All of this is unusal... More

Grand children, loved it especially our 5 year old grand son, who put us to shame with his knowledge, on the different species, which he had been learning about at school, the children loved it, excellent place for families to visit, got everything, from cafes to gift shops, brilliant trip out

We love the Deep and their year pass is brilliant, especially as my young son adores the penguins. Whilst the first 3/4 of the attraction are excellent, the final part really needs a revamp. Having a pram and been greeted by stairs and a small lift is bad enough but the area to too small for the soft play section,... More

Second visit to The Deep in a year. Apart from the first big tank having less fish than last time, there is so much to see and concise information at hand. A massive array of fish and marine life that parents should make the effort to show their children. My son was amazed to stand and see a giant catfish... More

We were only staying in Hull overnight, and the hotel we were staying in recommended visiting The Deep, we arrived before they opened at 10 and there was a bit of a queue but we were soon in! It was my first experience of visiting an aquarium and I was very impressed, it was very educational and the kids loved... More

What a fabulous experience this was. Right from the start of the day we could not fault the friendly staff and the set up of the whole exhibition was superb. The live comentries were very interesting and watching the divers feeding the fish in the small tank was interesting. But the best was yet to come the tunnel with the... More

I've wanted to visit since it opened in 2002 and finally made it today and I left a very happy bunny indeed. We came with our 12 and 16 year olds who thoroughly enjoyed their day too. Each stage of the exhibition has been brilliantly put together. The whole dinosaur presentation was an eye-opener, it made total sense to talk... More

A very good attraction which has something for all ages. Although you are channeled through the building you can do so at your own pace if you avoid following along with the flow. The displays are very well thought out and trace the evolution of sea life from earliest forms. Staff are available at key points to help understanding and... More
