“A journey into The Deep”

published 24/05/2016

ProPlenty to see, good layout

ConsPaid parking, very busy

Introduction The Deep is an aquarium in Hull, which opened in March 2002. It’s only about 60 miles from where I live and I remember there was quite a bit of hype surrounding its opening on the local news and in the years that followed many of our friends have visited yet it is something that I...

Having small children and being from Yorkshire myself, I have been aware of The Deep since it opened in 2002, but with it being located at Sammy's point in Hull (which is approximately 60 miles from my house located in South Yorkshire) we have never got round to going. My eldest son has been...

ProSharks! An amazing elevator and Big Tank

ConsToo interactive, not enough fish.

I would like to say that as a family we visited The Deep because my son asked to come. However the reality is that I love Aquariums, despite being 25. Although my son does like looking in fish tanks so it’s not like he was forced into coming….although at the time he was only 12 months old and had...

I hadn't been to Hull for a long time and I wasn't expecting to be back again for a long time - it's not exactly the sort of place you pass on the way to anywhere else. So knowing that the one thing I really wanted to see was the new 'Submarium' (nonsense name, I thought) I battled the one way...

“The Deep”

published 04/05/2010

ProInteresting and informative

ConsSome bits a bit samey

wHen we recently rented a caravan in Scarborough, one of the suggested places to visit in the brochure was the Deep, which is in Hull. Little Miss is interested in all things to do with animals and given that she finds Sea Life Centre interesting, we decided that it was worth a visit. The Deep is...

“Not shallow”

published 11/09/2002

Profun, informative, interactive

Conscar park charges

On the last day of the summer hols I took my two kids to The Deep. First and foremost, there is no fishy smell in the areas of Hull that people are likely to visit for fun! Now that that is out of the way, I'll describe my experience. The first thing we noticed was of course the car park. Three...

A few Sunday's back we decided to visit 'The Deep' in Hull after many recommendations and driving by it once on the way back from Beverley and being suitably impressed by it visually. We live just outside Doncaster so its not far for us, possible 45 minutes North. It was a lovely morning and a...

ConsAimed more at kids.

I enjoy watching fish & other 'underwater critters', so I visited 'The Deep' in Hull last year, after cashing in some Tesco clubcard vouchers for free entry tickets. The Deep is tauted as being one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world. I don't know if this is true or not - I've not...

We decided to visit the Deep last whilst on holiday in Yorkshire. It is situated on the Banks of the River Humber, which is in YORKSHIRE, no where near LONDON, as someone at Ciao thinks, my thanks to Silverback for pointing this out., anyway it's an area which is in the process of being built up...

“An excellent attraction”

published 22/08/2005

ProEducational, inexpensive, amazing views of fish

ConsInteractive displays difficult to access when busy

A list of reasons to visit Hull is not often a very long one, but The Deep is slowly changing this outdated image. The Deep is Europe's largest "Submarium". No, I don't know what a submarium is either, but essentially it is a big aquarium. The building was designed by Norman Foster and is...

ConsDifficult to get to by car

I have visited The Deep a couple of times now on short breaks up to Yorkshire and on each occasion have thoroughly enjoyed it. I was a little intrigued the first time I visited by the fact that you went up a lift three floors but soon all was to be revealled.... The start of the 'tour' took you...

“Mrs K Scott”

published 06/01/2009

ProCan't think of anything

ConsExpensive and not much there

Visited on 3rd January 2009 and we were very very disappointed. To start off with the £3 car park was expensive especially as it cost so much to go into the Deep - just over £24 for 2 adults and a child. Everywhere was very dark which made it difficult to read a lot of the information and the...
