Been looking forward to seeing this attraction for a while but in reality you don't get a great deal for your money and it's pretty crowded even outside of half term & holidays. Two main attractions are the aquarium tunnel and the penguins - the penguins have a very small tank and the tunnel is pretty short although there are... More

We think this is better than London aquarium as its a bit like a museum as well as an aquarium, and if you fill in the tax form for them to claim tax back from your ticket price (like gift aid) then they make your ticket valid for 12 months! So that is essentially a year's membership for the price... More

It was a great family day out and reasonably priced at around £37 for the family to be able to go as many times as we want in a year! The displays were awesome, it was just a shame the lagoon wasn't finished yet - but this was made clear on the website before we went. It was a bit... More

Obviously being the school holidays the deep was incredibly busy. So much so that the car parks were full but there is a council car park just outside so no big deal as you pay for either. The qeue for entry is in my experience always long as is the cafe so i have never experienced the food there. The... More

Wow! What a day... We woke up, and decided to venture out for the day. Travelled from Nottingham to The Deep, and wasn't disappointed. The quality of the exhibitions was superb, the animal welfare was remarkably and the care and attention to detail was evident. We arrived with our children (age 5, 2 and 6 months) and everyone enjoyed themselves,... More

We've been here a few times in the past but our children have enjoyed it more as they got older. Good value for money as you get free returns for a year with your ticket. Fabulous education into the World's oceans and also Amazon Rainforest too. As well as the huge aquarium which has a massive array of various fish... More

Went to the Deep while staying in Hull. Entry was expensive and vas very busy but they offer free entry for one year with the same pass. Penguin enclosure and the main tank with sharks were the best part of the tour. Other than that everything else was ok.

We took a group of 4 year olds for a birthday treat to the Deep. There is a picnic area where you can eat your own food which was really helpful. The boys loved all areas, but favourites were the walls of ice, the penguins (obviously!) and watching the swordfish and rays. You can walk to the Deep from the... More

Large queues so go early. As with all of Hull at the moment it is partly under construction. It lacks thought. Ok if you are an adult but half of the Deep is bewildering for kids - left me wondering too eg the ice tunnel. Full of selfish children and parents who hog the very limited viewing opportunities and interactive... More
