Deep Sea World is located underneath the iconic Forth Rail Bridge, in the quaint village of North Queensferry. Deep Sea World is one of the premier attractions in Scotland, offering fun for the whole family, no matter what their age. Come along and see our spectacular underwater tunnel and come face to face with one of Europe's largest collection of Sand Tiger sharks and even dive with them...If you're feeling brave enough!

Scotland suffers from a lack of quality indoor attractions. Given the weather, you would hope people would make a real effort to create them...! Alas, DSW falls short. My 2 boys (6 and 2) had a pretty decent time of it in all but after...More

Hi, best to look on their website as they have different types of tickets ie family tickets, advanced and flexi tickets etc It may also be worth keeping an eye on Groupon and Itson for reduced tickets. Hope that helps.
