The Deep

In line with Government guidance on COVID-19 and the recommendation to avoid gatherings and crowded places, The Deep has made the difficult decision to close to members of the public from 6pm on Sunday 22nd March 2020. Please keep an eye out on our website and social media pages where we will post updates as the situation progresses.

Take a trip to Hull’s award-winning aquarium, where the dramatic story of the world’s oceans is brought to life through magnificent aquatic exhibits. Let us take you on a journey from the birth of the oceans into the future, from tropical lagoons to the icy waters of Antarctica. Come face to face with sharks, rays and penguins amongst the 5,000 residents.

For those of you with little ones to keep occupied - don’t get crabby, come to little nippers at The Deep! Join us on Tuesday mornings 9:30am-11:00am for our fun-filled discovery and play sessions. Check out for full details.
