Went for a visit with my Better half and although we had a nice time, having done quite a few aquariums on our travels over the years this being one of the Best in the UK thought it still lacked some way behind Nauticaa in Boulogne, France.

Great place to take the family both young and old. Get to see lots of different sea life and generally have a look under the oceans. Penguins are great.

The Deep was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. But of course there are many children running and playing about the building. So if you are want to closely appreciate the sea life go during weekday. Beware of that the penguins have their own schedule for day and night. The lights on the penguins may go out, for "night time."
