Deep Sea World is located underneath the iconic Forth Rail Bridge, in the quaint village of North Queensferry.

Come along and see our spectacular underwater tunnel and come face to face with one of Europe's largest collection of Sand Tiger sharks and even dive with them...If you're feeling brave enough!

This is the most overpriced place i have taken my kids to. Free for under 3's. Adults £15 quid each. Not worth it, we seen everything in about 45 minutes. The canteen is so overpriced for mediocre food. Canteen looked old, like a school cafeteria....More

We went at the request of our 9 year old granddaughter, despite our own reservations from previous visits, the last of which was maybe 3 years ago. There was little evidence that any new money has been ploughed into improvements or additions. Our first stop...More

We took our 7 year old grandson for a day out and what a disappointment! Very boring and not value for money you can see everything within an hour! The only good thing was watching the seals being fed which only lasted ten minutes! AVOID...More

Went here with our children, the front entrance from the carpark looks very neglected. Aquariums were ok but there wasnt a huge amount to see considering the price admission. Meals from the cafeteria were ok, but our coca cola tasted flat and old, even my...More

The entrance is shabby & depressing! Looks very neglected. Was not impressed with the place at all, staff appeared vacant & disinterested. The cafe area was filthy there was a lack of staff. Not worth the admission fee.

Unless you want to see all the great talks that both facilities have to offer the two could be easily accomplished in a day. Deep sea world is open from 10am to 5pm but you want to be there at least one hour before closing... More

Hi, best to look on their website as they have different types of tickets ie family tickets, advanced and flexi tickets etc It may also be worth keeping an eye on Groupon and Itson for reduced tickets. Hope that helps.
