We come to the deep about once a month. With 2 children two and under they have a great time every visit. We now don't spend much more than an hour in the deep but that's purely because we have been so often. Good soft play area for little children. Staff are always helpful and friendly. My only criticism is... More

The best sea life centre yet. Always being a little sceptical about these type of places I was not sure what to expect but was more than pleasantly surprised by how great it was. The displays are great and well presented, the speakers are well informed and funny. The food on offer at the cafe is nice and reasonably priced

We enjoyed our trip, i went with my best and two young family members (5) and (8) we enjoyed looking at all the different fish and various exhibits. Only downside was the children being the age they were flew round the place and we spent two hours only and expected to be the whole day. The staff were very friendly... More

I came here not so long ago with my family and we all loved it. It's a great place for young and old, there are facts and plenty of interactive things for children to do. Very friendly staff who help along the way. Would go again any time.

I have been here quite a few times over the years and I have to say on my first visit, it was great and I loved it thoroughly! But they don't have enough of a change to entice you back over... despite them selling a yearly ticket which usually means that over the year they would still entertain you My... More

Priced at £12 per adult and you get a whole years entry from that one ticket. We probably should have figured out it was going to be a short visit. We enjoyed walking around and seeing the fish and penguins. It was lovely watching the penguins together and that offered entertainment but we just found the whole thing rather short.... More
