Open since 2002, The Deep operates as an education and conservation charity and in recent years has become an international player in marine conservation. Forging partnerships with key governing bodies, conservation organisations and other reputable zoos and aquariums we are working to make an impact in the protection of our oceans. It is one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world, is located in Hull, East Yorkshire and is home to 5,000 animals including magnificent sharks and rays. The dramatic building, which overlooks the Humber estuary, was designed by world class architects, Sir Terry Farrell and Partners in, what was then, one of the most deprived and unfashionable cities in England. The Deep is now the most commercially successful Millenium Project. In its first year The Deep welcomed over 850,000 visitors, making Hull’s new aquarium busier than London Zoo. This early success financed a £5 million extension in 2005, which included additional exhibition space, retail, catering and education areas. As part of the regeneration of Hull The Deep has become an internationally recognised landmark and has even featured on a Royal Mail stamp! The building exploits the landscape on which it is built and was inspired by natural geological land formations. Gleaming glass and aluminium thrust into the dramatic landscape on the confluence of the two rivers marking the historic entry to Kingston upon Hull with a brand new future.
