The Deep, Kingston-upon-Hull

3.9
#1 of 9 in Zoos & Aquariums in Yorkshire
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. A visit to The Deep represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kingston-upon-Hull trip planning app to plot your vacation.

  • We had a great few hours exploring the whole place. You start on the 3rd floor and work you way down which means you don't miss a thing. You get to see all the tanks from several angles which is good. And it's all very clear and well maintained. Lots to see and you can easily spend 3 hours + and still see more on a return visit. My one year old loved this. Seems to be well placed for all ages. You got or old! Very much worth a visit. Tickets... are for a year which is really good. Cues can be long but they go quick. No more than 20min cue. (Seems silly tho as we booked online first yet could not skip the cue)
  • Really enjoyed coming here with my family. Great that once you paid u get to come for a year free fantastic. Can get round it pretty quick tho but im sure if you read and look at everything it would last a day. Restaurant and cafe are reasonably priced and nice food also there is a picnic area. Gift shop is cheaper than most iv seen good selection
  • Fantastic! A great sea life venue with awesome decor and design. Very well set out and easy to follow without missing any exhibits. Very disabled friendly. Cafe, toilets and gift shop. Better than some other sea life centres I've previously visited and cheaper to get in too!!
  • Not bad for a day out. The staff are very friendly and great with the kids. The food is pretty good and not too ridiculous price wise. There is quite a lot to see, but it did seem to end quite quickly so we went round again. The main reason I'm only giving it 4 stars though is because they didn't have an octopus. But your ticket lasts for a year so we will be back to see if they have one then.
  • A great place for young and old. Worth every penny. Very informative. Plenty of lifts and wheelchair/buggy access. Lots of interactive information points. Allow at least 2hrs visiting time. Food in the restaurant value for money for either hot meals or sandwiches. Average £5 - £6 per person and excellent views over Hull and the Humber
