The Deep

We are so happy to be welcoming all our visitors back to Hull’s amazing aquarium and enjoy a fin-tastic day. With over 5000 animals, including spectacular sharks and rays, the UK’s only Green sawfish, hundreds of tropical fish, Loggerhead sea turtles and a colony of Gentoo penguins, there's something for everyone.

The Deep crew have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure government guidelines are adhered to, offering a safe and clean environment for visitors to enjoy. Noticeable changes will include new opening times of 9am- 6pm (last entry 5pm) on weekends and school holidays (10am - 6pm Monday - Friday during term time), directional signage, hand sanitising stations and timed ticket slots which will require pre-booking on-line.

Please note, to avoid crowds gathering, the dive show, touchpool sessions and scheduled feed presentations will be suspended for now. Find out more about our safety measures, what a visit with us will look like and how to book your timeslot and tickets at
