If you are looking for sleepover ideas, then why not consider The Deep as a venue for your organised group? The Deep is a fantastic venue and is like no other when it comes to sleepover ideas. Children get the opportunity to sleep next to our tanks as sharks, rays and other species swim close by. So if you are looking for somewhere different as a sleepover idea then The Deep may be the venue for you.

Enjoy a tour around The Deep with one of our fully trained guides and learn about the animals that live here. Children will then eat their own supper (so please bring a pack up) followed by some fun filled activities before heading off to bed.

The cost of the above is from £22 per child with a minimum of 60 children – maximum 150 children (if you want a Friday or a Saturday the prices stay the same but the minimum number of children is 100). The price per adult is £5 and we require you to provide a minimum ratio of 1 adult per 8 children.

Your booking would only be accepted on the assumption that you will provide a sufficient number of suitably trained, qualified and insured adults to care overnight for the group (including those under the age of 8) in line with all relevant legal requirements and that the children will be under your care and supervision throughout the evening. All children are served breakfast in the morning before they leave – but don’t worry, this is away from the sharks!

To book your sleepover please call us on 01482 381091 or email us.
