This place is amazing! Very informative/educational but in a fun way. We were a mixed aged group but there was something for everyone. We booked online ahead of visiting which meant it was slightly cheaper. You can re-visit within 12 months for free. Great value...More

Hi! Obviously this can depend on the day but as a general guide for a quieter experience we do suggest visiting outside our busy periods of 11am and 3pm. With Thanks The Deep Crew

There are stairs available, but the lift is brilliant and enhances your trip and I get vertigo badly and petrified of heights, but I can easily handle the lift!

Hi Maggie147. Yes the deep is very wheel chair friendly and I do believe the "pusher" get's in for nowt. We have 3 main shopping centre's in Hull and all have lift's. If you want any more info about Hull just ask. ian480.

Best cabin / park stopover Savannah - Great Smoky Mountains (4 Replies)
Good afternoon all, I'm planning a road trip across the Deep South during June/July 2018. Early on our itinerary are Savannah and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Having stayed at state park camping cabins in Florida, I hear that GA has many parks with fantastic facilities. Would anyone be able to suggest state parks with small(er) camping cabins or similar lodgings (linens supplied, with a BBQ/fire pit etc.) which could make a good stopover for two adults our way to NC/TN? ...More
