The Deep


The Deep is a spectacular aquarium in Hull, which is home to an amazing 3,500 fish. See the UK’s only pair of green sawfish, spectacular sharks and rays, tropical reef fish and river dwellers from all over the world. And of course, the colony of Gentoo penguins!

Journey through the story of the world’s oceans travelling through a unique blend of spectacular marine life from warm tropical waters to the cold Antarctic seas. Enjoy the fun and educational interactive and audio-visual presentations on your voyage of discovery. 
See the amazing new Lagoon of Light which has undergone a £500,000 refurbishment. Home to hundreds of brightly coloured fish as well as our very own juvenile zebra sharks, this exhibit is a real show stopper.  
Created in conjunction with world class exhibit designer David Lazenby, the display is themed around the granite island of Pulau Ubin, between Singapore and Malaysia. Holding a whopping 220,000 litres of saltwater (which is mixed here on site by our divers), it features amazing new corals, mangrove trees and real foliage. It also includes a ‘wave machine’ that replicates the tidal movements of a real lagoon so our animals feel right at home.
Other daily highlights at The Deep include dive shows/animal presentations where you can see the divers hand feed the animals. Join in with our fantastic touch pool sessions at Discovery Corner and learn about some of the smaller native species to the UK shores. Finally walk through the amazing glass tunnel and take in the stunning marine life swimming all around you, before taking a ride in the glass lift through the 10m Endless Oceans exhibit.
