The Deep, Kingston-upon-Hull

4.0
#1 of 10 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.

  • Enjoyed my visit on a November midweek day. Good day to visit as while there were a few visitors (including a couple of parties of young school children) it was pretty quiet. Had no problem viewing th...  more »

  • We were excited to take our children to the deep. We set off on our 2 hour drive to make sure we were there early. When we got there it was already busy and so we couldn’t park in the car park there. ...  more »

  • What an amazing place to get close to sea life. You learn so much and see the fishes and other animals from the ocean up close. The divers who feeds the sharks and other fish are brilliant. The children and adults enjoy every moment! A wonderful day out with lots to see and it does not cost the earth. Well worth it. 👍👍👍
  • This is an amazing place! I absolutely love the variety of sea life they have it was amazing! The tanks of fish were very colourful and the penguins were great! They have a lovely cafe with lots of variety for vegetarians and vegans. The cafe on two levels and I would recommend sitting at top floor as there are amazing views! You can step out onto the balcony and see the Humber Bridge. Overall it is an amazing place!
  • This being our first time at The Deep, we were a little unsure of what to expect. Parkjng was good priced at £3 for six hours. We went with two of our grandchildren after booking the tickets on line. This was an easy undertaking and were given an on line discount, also it gave us unlimited revisits for the year. We arrived and got straight in after our picture was taken. The place its self was great with many interactive items to do. Whilst there we had a snack, both the half way cafe and main area were good with reasonable prices. All in all a good place to spend a few hours. The grand children said it was wicked. A good recommendation in itself.
  • A great day out for kids an adults. Well worth a trip. Informative and some really wow things to see. We took a one and three year old who were well entertained. Parking was good and all day ticket for £3 at the time of writing so you can explore Hull Marina and Old town.
  • Great day out for older and younger kids alike. Lots of interactivity and beautiful displays. A real education to our effect pollution has on our oceans and the life within. We spent about 3 1/2 hours here. It was very busy but we did visit in the summer hols.
