    I don't usually write reviews but I was so disheartened by our visit to Deep Sea World I felt compelled to warn others to save their money and go spend it somewhere else. I read reviews before we visi...  more »

  • The cafe let it down most - although if you like over paying, waiting around and barely reheated food then it might be right up your street! On a more serious note, place is generally good, maybe could do with a few new attractions. I recall a couple of the tanks when first walk in were empty. Kids would love it though! Book online in advance and save some cash!
  • I visited Deep Sea World purely from a photographic point of view but generally it was well worth the visit to walk through the underground tunnel and watch giant rays and sharks swim above your head as they appear out of the dark. It seems quite well set up for the children too which you have to think in these days of pushing conservation awareness is a good thing. Personally i would have like a couple of members of staff walking around that could answer questions, give information or even little anecdotes about some of the fish. All in all, it's a great experience.
  • After reading reviews for Deep Sea World I was really weary about the visit but decided to go regardless and I am so glad we did! The price is definitely a little on the expensive side but my 3 year old, partner and I spent 3 hours here and given it's a place of conservation, I really didn't mind paying it. The place itself is not massive but the exhibits are really lovely and all have their own theme with a wide variety of fish, amphibians, etc. There is lots of information for the different species which I thought was great! There are loads of different talks and displays, three of which we attended and totally enjoyed! The staff where extremely friendly, personal and knowledgable. The talks themselves could easily be chargeable elsewhere so if visiting I would definitely suggest attending some talks. The seals were particularly enjoyable for myself but for my partner and son the sharks won fins down! The tunnel. Wow. In it's own right it is a fantastic experience being of such a decent length you can truly enjoy it. There is lots to see in it and having sharks of that size swim above you is awesome. For a 3 year old boy with a massive love of sharks it was perfect. We ended up going round it 3 times! To be honest the more I think about it, the more I think the price is just about justifiable! We thought the gift shop was actually decently priced but can't comment on the cafe! Will defintley come back again !
  • It was a nice day out. There is a lot of potential to make. It even better. The restaurant desperately needs a visit from Gordon Ramsay. The fish and chips were solid as a rock and the mushy peas tasted of something else.
  • I thought Deep Sea World is a little dated. Quite expensive to enter and then over £5 for 2 coffees. It was able to get the cost down as I found a voucher code for one a full adult ticket and got my child in free. The tunnel under the aquarium is still amazing.
