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!

Very overpriced. The aquarium bit is good but not good enough to charge what they do. The restaurant is very disappointing. Very basic canteen like. When there with my wife and toddler and other relatives on a Saturday at lunch time there was food strewn...More

A very expensive visit for a family in what you can walk around in less than an hour. Thought maybe after 10 years it would have gotten bigger and better but sadly not.

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.
