The Deep, Kingston-upon-Hull

(3.9/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
Located in a strikingly angular, sloping building at the confluence of the Hull River and the Humber estuary, The Deep serves as home to thousands of sea creatures. Although the main attractions are the seven species of shark on display, the aquarium also boasts a collection of marine life that includes rays and many other tropical fish. You can take a stab at controlling an underwater diving vessel in the aquarium’s interactive area.

  • Visited The Deep on Monday April 10th. We had booked a family ticket online which saved a few £ off the door entry price. We arrived at about 11am and there was quite a long queue for the entry desk, ...  more »
  • We had a lovely day, only £12.50 each and we made our ticket valid for free returns. There was lots to see, we loved the penguins best!  more »
  • We visited yesterday and were in awe of what we could see and read. So much to take in if you want to learn about the Oceans and Seas of our planet. The children were amazed by all the fish and partic...  more »

  • Had a great time. Parking lot out front is small but I imagine that there are more places to park nearby within a 5-10 minute walk. The inside flow was nice and there is plenty to see and do. The live demonstrations were a good distraction and made the price of admission worthwhile. The food court is good for a hot meal and prices are affordable.
  • A very big fish tank that you can walk around. Lots to see but don't go at peak times if you want to quietly contemplate the enormity of the oceans or stare into the eyes of your long distant fishy cousins (a few times removed). Not sure if they can see through the glass to see you. Does some great research and education work. Some areas act as child voice echo chambers, Has brilliant views of the Humber. I'd go again.
  • Awesome place! about 3 years ago they got a shipping of penguins. which is cool. Another thing is that the architecture of the building is a sunken ship :o
  • Fantasic place to go doesn't matter how old you are !! Situated on the side of the river Humber with view from the cafe of the famous bridge The deep has lots of interactive things for you to use on you journey from the top reef down to the deep (the reef is under maintenance at the moment so you cannot see any of the brightly colour fish you would normally see ) there are still loads of things to do and see on your journey down in to the deep ,the staff I spoke to were very friendly helpfull there is a great play area at the bottom for the very young the tunnel is amazing
  • Brilliant for a visit. Something for everyone. Really enjoy going to the Deep and have been a few times over the years. Always something new to see.
