Overview

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!

I like going here just because i love the town. Quaint houses with beautiful gardens. My daughter loved it when she was younger but not too keen as a young adult.

We enjoyed our visit and the staff seemed friendly. However, for being advertised as "Scotland's National Aquarium", it was smaller than expected and some areas definitely need updating (compared with other aquariums). The long shark tunnel was good but the quality of the water in...More

Hello, I am planning to visit Deep Sea World this Sunday. Do you think I can cover both Dynamic Earth and Deep Sea world in one day?

Unless you want to see all the great talks that both facilities have to offer the two could be easily accomplished in a day. Deep sea world is open from 10am to 5pm but you want to be there at least one hour before closing... 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.

Went to deep sea world today and we have just found out that our entry was supposed to allow us into an exhibition about the bridges which is called SPAN - a tale of three bridges due to run till end of August. Why did the staff not inform us about this and if the exhibition is not available then it falsely claims that it is on the DSW website.
