About The Deep

The Deep is a public aquarium situated at Sammy’s Point, at the confluence of the River Hull and the Humber Estuary in Hull, England. It opened in March 2002.

Billed as “the world’s only submarium”,[4] the exhibits contain thousands of sea creatures (including seven species of shark), 2,500,000 litres (550,000 imp gal; 660,000 US gal) of water and 87 tonnes (96 short tons; 86 long tons) of salt housed in a building designed by Sir Terry Farrell and built as part of the UK National Lottery’s Millennium Commission project.

The Deep is also a landmark centre for marine research. A team of aquarists look after the animals in The Deep’s collection as well as carrying out research into the marine environment. In 2013, the aquarium was voted the best family place to visit in Hull.

The Deep is a charitable public aquarium dedicated to increasing people’s enjoyment and understanding of the world’s oceans.[5]

What they say:
Journey through the story of the world’s oceans travelling through a unique blend of spectacular marine life from warm tropical waters to the cold Antarctic seas.

See our colony of Gentoo penguins in chilly The Kingdom of Ice and learn more about the threats to their habitat, issues surrounding climate change and ocean acidification as well as animal biology and food chains.

Finally walk through the amazing glass tunnel and take in the stunning marine life swimming all around you, before taking a ride in the glass lift through the 10m Endless Oceans exhibit.
