Fabulous collection of slippery creatures, from the smallest creepy crawlies, to sharks and rays, in a top-class building. Best enjoyed accompanied by little people :-). We tend to avoid The Deep, during school holidays, or go soon after opening time, as it can get rather busy. The start of the aquarium tour is rather dark, and the voice coming over... More

We arrived early to find that The Deep had opened its doors earlier than usual due to it being the Easter School holidays. Hence we managed to do most of the attraction before the rush began. This is an amazing place, full of information and not that expensive to visit. Can highly recommend it.

We have just visited today from Leeds. It took approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes to get to The Deep. Parking wasn't a problem and we queued for about 10 minutes which again wasn't too bad (we arrived at 10:30am) there are 3 floors that you work your way down, through a maze of tanks and facts. Our daughter is... More

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your trip. We are extremely busy when the weather isn't great, which I assume is why we were so busy when you visited. In regards to your comment regarding our penguins, Gentoos are a Sub Antarctic species of bird and as such enjoy colder temperatures. Our... More

Very interesting place, the only disapointing part was the 3D screen, the glass needed to be replaced as they were all scratched

The Deep is a not for profit organisation - everything is done for education and conservation. The displays are informative and well laid out and the attraction has over 3500 fish, penguins and some very helpful staff. It can get busy so we were there shortly before 10 when it opens. There is no undercover waiting area so take a... More
