Myself (25) and my boyfriend (28) went to The Deep as a weekend outing on a rainy Sunday afternoon and we absolutely loved it. Found it a little strange that they ask to take your picture, we thought maybe it was some gift shop picture opportunity but unfortunately not. We were given a ticket so not sure what this was...

The Deep is one of my favorite places in Hull (by the way they are offering now annual pass, so it is even better). Lots to see and do. My 6 year old loves it. It is very informative, brilliant education. When going back, if you can - don't take lift that goes up via the aquarium. The experience is... More

We have been here on a number of occasions and never get bored of the place. Unfortunately we haven't been for about 18 months now. This is a very good place to take the younger ones in the family.

This is a brilliant place, for adults and children alike. The staff are wonderfully enthusiastic, and the fish change and the exhibits are updated, so there is usually something new to see. You can't get closer to penguins than here, where they come right up to the glass, and are utterly adorable. Buy the sticker guidebook which is really good... More

We decided to visit the Deep during the festive break to get away from the sales and Christmas TV at home. It was very busy when we arrived, luckily for us we had our disabled grandfather with us so were able to use the disabled check-in (but the normal check-in was only 5 minutes slower). Parking is good but can... More

Well worth the visit. Really enjoyed it. I could walk round this place all day. The fish in the tanks are beautiful. Some of the colours of the fish are amazing. I always say to people visiting Hull to go and see for themselves.
