Aquarium · Zoo / Aquarium
Located in a strikingly angular, sloping building at the confluence of the Hull River and the Humber estuary, The Deep serves as home to thousands of sea creatures. Although the main attractions are the seven species of shark on display, the aquarium also boasts a collection of marine life that includes rays and many other tropical fish. You can take a stab at controlling an underwater diving vessel in the aquarium’s interactive area. A visit to The Deep represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kingston-upon-Hull trip planning app to plot your vacation.

  • What an amazing place to get close to sea life. You learn so much and see the fishes and other animals from the ocean up close. The divers who feeds the sharks and other fish are brilliant. The children and adults enjoy every moment! A wonderful day out with lots to see and it does not cost the earth. Well worth it. 👍👍👍
  • This is an amazing place! I absolutely love the variety of sea life they have it was amazing! The tanks of fish were very colourful and the penguins were great! They have a lovely cafe with lots of variety for vegetarians and vegans. The cafe on two levels and I would recommend sitting at top floor as there are amazing views! You can step out onto the balcony and see the Humber Bridge. Overall it is an amazing place!
