Great place to take the family both young and old. Get to see lots of different sea life and generally have a look under the oceans. Penguins are great.

The Deep was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. But of course there are many children running and playing about the building. So if you are want to closely appreciate the sea life go during weekday. Beware of that the penguins have their own schedule for day and night. The lights on the penguins may go out, for "night time."

We had a great day at the deep and as a bonus have found out once you have bought tickets you can come back for a year for FREE!!! The visit is really interactive for our 2.5 year old and it's really easy to get our 3 month old around in the pram. We can't wait to go again.

I've been to The Deep twice in two years. The first time the penguin enclosure was closed and this time, the lagoon was closed. Both for refurbishments. I know this is a necessary evil and the other exhibits are plenty enough for the money. I just can't wait to go when everything is open! The staff were friendly but the... More

Thank you for your review, I am pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit despite our Lagoon area being under construction. We are constantly trying to update our exhibits and planning for new ones, however we have left it two years between the two most recent major constructions. As you have mentioned, your pass entitles you to visit again... More

Good value for Monday, especially with free returns within a year. Takes a couple of hours to go round with young kids - more if we actually got to read the info. Will definitely be going back.

In and out within an hour. Great for kids I'd imagine but whilst in the area looking for something to pass the time I'd not recommend this as it was small, expensive and the penguins part very small and disappointing.

I am sorry to read you did not feel The Deep was to your liking. That may be in part due to the very short time you spent within the attraction, as it is impossible to fully appreciate everything we have to offer in this amount of time. Kind Regards- The Deep. More

For the price you get to visit as much as you want for 12 months! Amazing attractions; sharks, penguins, sting rays and much more. Lots of information to read if you fancy it, but also bits for kids to do. Cafe is very very reasonable and very accessible; healthy food, wheelchair accessible tables, baby food warming station.
