Wonderful family day out at the Deep; our children thoroughly enjoyed it and did not get bored once in four hours. Lots of exhibits to see, and interactive displays. You learn quite a lot from them, and also from the staff who speak publicly whilst feeding the fish in the lagoon area. We also saw the penguins being fed in... More

TBH really disappointed today. Just didn't tick the boxes because we hoped to see more live fish etc similar to Sea World in Birmingham. In fairness probably great for young children with lots of interactive activities and play areas but not stimulating enough for the older age range that already have this education under their belt. We were in and... More

My almost 2 year old nephew loves the deep, he likes to have something to occupy him and he's never bored in here! There are fun interactive parts for kids and lighting is just right, plus once you've bought your ticket you can go again for free for a year!

Brilliant day out for both adults and children.The purchased ticket lasts all year so you can go as often as you like.Great attraction for children.Its just simply amazing inside.It was feeding time for the fish when we visited so that was a bonus.Loads of sea life to see,there is also a cafe upstairs with a great view.

It is £12 for an adult ticket but worth the visit as there are lots to see. At 11:30 they feed the penguins and you can also watch the divers feed the fish. At the end you can either take the scenic lift or the scenic stairs if you take the lift you actually exit through one of the big... More

My wife and myself decided that a visit to The Deep with two of the grandchildren would be a nice way to spend a day, or at least a morning. I am not sure what I expected but I found the walk around the displays somewhat lacking in the sparkle that comes through in the advertising for the venue. I... More

had a lovely day here last week - even though the queue for admission seemed really long - it was only about 20 minutes and was really well organised. £13 per adult and £10 per child but this included admission for a whole year. A new addition since our last visit was the penguins - this was very good. Had... More
