The Deep

Details

The Deep tells the amazing story of the world's oceans through stunning marine life, interactives and audio-visual presentations making it a fun-filled family day out for all ages. See sharks, rays, turtles, penguins and more at this fantastic aquarium.

We are dedicated to informing visitors about the world’s oceans and the challenges they face and operate as an education and conservation charity with all money made being re-invested back into pioneering research and new exhibits.

The Deep is open daily from 10am until 6pm
Last admission is at 5pm, although we recommended you to arrive no later than 4pm
We are closed on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day.

Although we make every attempt to keep queues to a minimum, please be aware that there will be a queuing system on busy days (including weekends and school holidays). The Deep tends to be busier when it is raining. We strongly recommend visitors to arrive at The Deep at 10am when we open or after 2pm to avoid the crowds. On average our visitors spend between 2 and 3 hours at The Deep. As we do not close until 6pm, there is plenty of time to enjoy the attraction in the afternoon.
