The Deep is an outstanding, award-winning, day out for all ages.

This internationally recognised landmark sits proudly at the point where the River Hull joins the River Humber. But it’s not just the striking architecture that has tourists flocking to the attraction year on year. Across its 50 displays, The Deep is home to over 300 species and 5,000 animals, including the penguins, sharks, turtles and rays.

Your tour of The Deep starts in the Awakening Seas section, long before the arrival of people. It then continues through a Lagoon of Light, Endless Ocean, Slime, Bugs, Cool Seas, Kingdom of Ice, Deep Blue One and an Amazon Flooded Forest. Along the way, there are some key characters to keep an eye out for. There’s the nocturnal Epaulette shark, Sensa and Mabouche the rescued Loggerhead sea turtles, the VIPs (Very Important Penguins) and an enormous vegetarian relative of the piranha, the Black pacu.

In addition to the displays, The Deep hosts a fascinating programme of events, including the daily Dive Shows, Touchpool Sessions and Penguin Feeding. As well as the events, there are plenty of spaces to eat, including picnic benches, the Castaway Café and the Halfway Café. And to round off the day, why not stop by the ‘Department Store’ gift shop to buy a souvenir to continue the enjoyment at home.
