Despite all the controversy surrounding Aquarians, the deep is a wonderful place to go. There's always something new to see and the good old favourites. The staff are very friendly and are on hand to answer any questions you may have. Entry is reasonably priced as you get free return visits for a year, there's plenty of parking, a cafe and big gift shop. Leave a couple of hours to relax and view the amazing aquatic life.
Amazing aquarium and really good trip out for the family. Not a complete day out but at least an opportunity for 3 or 4 hours. Good selection of different animals and lots of interesting information. It would be nice to have a bit more interaction with the staff
You honestly cant go wrong with this place! One of the better aquariums in the country and a wide array of animals. Also penguins!!! I mean if this isn't reason enough to go I don't know what is. We bought our tickets online to take advantage of the advance booking discount. £12.50 per adult and you can come back for free as many times as you want for a year! Nice cafe at the end with hot food and sandwiches and into the gift shop to finish the day.
What a enlightening day out! A really nice aquarium with plenty of water animal species. The core tank is large enough to house many different types of big fish, you can enjoy it going down but mainly going back up where the exhibition starts. Good visit for any age. Thank you for the conservation efforts and for educate us.
As a aquatics loving nerd I absolutely love this place. We have travelled up twice and my boys are asking to go again. Great size site with plenty to see, all arranged into different zones. Amazing large tank displays which you can sit in front of for hours on end. Has some great interactive elements including the ice walls (great fun to get you kids to lift up their shirts while you push them against it) and even an elevator that goes up through one of the main tanks be warned my kids had us going up and down several times (it was quiet so we was able to stay in the lift). Food in the restaurant is good and well priced and they also have an upper platform that is outside and overlooks the Humber which is nice to stand out on.
What a great day out for my two girls aged 4 and 8. Great value based upon the attraction as a whole. Amazing main tank, coupled with great exhibits, informative displays and visuals. Secure parking is 3 pounds for 6 hours. The ticket is also valid for another visit during the year. There is a picnic area and a restaurant, I would say base your judgement on the aquarium after all that's why you are there, if you want a snack its fine. All in all a great 2.5/ 3.5 hour attraction. !!
AMAZING Aquarium. Absolutely loved it. I love these kinds of places and it was great to see the love and care the workers there have for the animals. The big tank in the middle was very impressive especially when we watched the divers feed the animals. It was amazing that they have very rare creatures there. The building itself is incredible and such an iconic building. Will definitely be returning again, especially as you get to go back for free one time in the next year.
A brilliant day out for all the family, especially children. A great chance to see all sorts of sea life in a well kept imitation of their natural habitats. A well laid out path through ensures there's always something to see. The Deep has a nice restaurant with fair prices as well as a picnic area halfway through the aquarium and a children's soft play area and interactive section. Parking is cheap and plentiful at £3 for 6 hours and when purchasing a standard entry ticket, you also get free re-entry for a whole year. Excellent value for money and an easy and interesting day out!
Fabulous place! We went as a couple and it was still great for us to experience, as we were sceptical this might be more of a family place. Great access for disabled visitors/wheelchair users throughout. Interesting boards and viewing tanks/platforms throughout with the main aquarium in the centre hub of the building. Great on site cafe and shop! Ticket prices were reasonable and they're valid for 12months at a unlimited free revisits! Parking was pay and display, but again, a few pounds so nothing out the ordinary. We spent around 2-3 hours here with a bite to eat included!
Awesome experience with a time line going back from the beginning of the earth to the present day of our ocean. They have over 100 fish with plenty of large enclosures designed specifically for the inhabitants. They are extremely helpful with disabilities and difficulties. And giving you a half way stop really helps. It's an amazing building with a decent amount of parking space but it becomes rather busy between 10 and 3
Took my Son (10 Months) - Tickets/Food/Parking are rather pricey (Although tickets are valid for a whole year)! My boy didn’t have much to do, the play are is very small with many older kids jumping about. He did enjoy looking into the tanks though! I enjoyed myself, although it was a little busy and I was pushed out of the way a few times.. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the animals kept there!
Me and my family got free enter as I'm in the forces so for us it was great. Lots to see there and the staff actually seem to know what they are talking about and generally seemed like they cared and enjoyed their jobs. There was a wedding happening when we was there which I didn't know the deep done but interesting to know they did. Large tanks and many fish to see. Great for the kids to see. Would definitively return
Love love love The Deep! We will definitely be returning, especially as unlimited returns is included in the original ticket price! Our 1 year old son loved it as his birthday treat, especially the big fish and jellyfish. Loved the addition of a soft play section, after all the excitement our soon had some steam to crawl off! Everyone is really helpful and it really is a fab day out.
Fantastic experience, with great talks from the staff. Unfortunately Easter Weekend is their busiest time so there was so many other people there, you weren't really able to see into the tanks as much or read the information. Luckily, your entrance fee gives you free return visits for a year afterwards so we will be going back when it is quieter and we'll be able to see more. I recommend taking a 'picnic' and stopping half way around in the seating area to eat. Parking was very good, only £3 for 6 hours. We stayed for around 4 hours in total with feeding our 1 year old half way around. I also recommend taking the lift through the main tank to the exit at the end!
Lots to do and see for all ages from very young. Staff were ALL really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Parking and entry prices reasonable and represented good value. Food in cafe and the gift shop were all reasonably priced. Thoroughly recommended.
A top notch attraction. Lots to learn (if that's your thing) and lots of amazing fish and sea creatures to look at, ohh and penguins! It really is a fantastic place to visit and you can return free of charge for the next year which makes it a bargain! Doesn't take that long to walk round 2 - 3 hours. There is a small cafe 1/2 way round the aquarium and a much larger (and better) one at the end. Plenty of car parking (pay and display).
The deep is a fun day out especially with children. A large number of interesting exhibits all backed up with lots of information/facts and figures. Tanks are all large, clean and well designed. Could be a bit larger as only took us about 3-4 hours including food/drink. Not expensive though as entry/food/drink is fairly reasonably priced. The only shame is that you have to pay again for car parking which in my opinion should be free as you have paid entry.
Fantastic place to visit, cant wait till my lad is older so we can spend more time here. Great value if you get the yearly pass, you can visit as often as you like and it only costs a couple of extra quid. Does get very busy in school holidays and rainy days like any indoor venue. well worth a trip.
Lovely aquarium, makes a change from sea life. Thought it was bigger than it is so thought would take longer to get round but probably worked in our favour and little one still had fun. Entry ticket can be converted to annual pass free of charge which is a bonus. We arrived at 11.30am and it was SO busy. The queue was a good 150m from the door so we went and had lunch and returned about 2pm where we walked straight in. Enclosures seemed clean, animals appeared well looked after. Staff seemed friendly and engaging.
A truly wonderful aquarium at a very reasonable price considering in exchange for a few details you can turn your one time entry price in to an annual ticket. As you walk around the deep and you begin to learn you truly get a sense that whomever it may be who is in charge has a genuine interest in conservation and live by their own value of "for conservation, not profit". That single value is why, from where I have visited for aquariums in the UK, this is the best.
The Deep is an aquarium situated next to the River Humber where it is easily accessed and found. We have been twice and both times have found it easy to park although we have been there for opening time. From viewing other visitors as we exit it seems like a struggle to find a spot if you come later on. You also have to pay for parking. The aquarium itself is well kept and all the exhibits are brilliant, however not much has changed within the 11 months of both our visits. I find that the tickets are very overpriced and not really worth it unless you ensure you make at least two visits (tickets are valid for 12 months) this is the main reason for my 3 stars. Try to avoid school holidays as it gets annoyingly busy. Not tried the cafe. Took us just over two hours to get round all the attractions. Probably wouldn't go again (get the most out of your 12 month tickets though!) and would instead be tempted to try other aquariums elsewhere just for some variety. This being said, I wouldn't want to put anybody off going and would encourage it as there's some lovely fish etc to see - worth a visit if you can afford!
Amazing! There is a lot of interactivtivity. And so many daily things going on that you'll always find something entertaining! The range of aquarium (and non aquarium) life here is just amazing. Way better than a sea life center. The tickets are well priced - around 11-15 pounds, and a year long entry. The gift shop here is huge- with a wide variety of items available to purchase!
