If you are looking for sleepover ideas, then why not consider The Deep as a venue for your organised group? 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 for a sleepover then The Deep may be the venue for you.

Enjoy an evening tour around The Deep with one of our guides and learn about the animals that live here. Children will picnic with their pack ups in front of the tanks before being creative some fun-filled craft activities. Groups will then settle down for the night in sleeping bags around the nocturnal tank activity.

All children are served breakfast in the morning before they leave (but don’t worry, this is away from the sharks!) and have the chance to shop in the Deepartment store before departure at 8am. 

Sleepovers cost £23 per child. You must provide a minimum ratio of 1 adult per 8 children. The minimum number of children varies dependent on the night of the week as follows. Adult places cost £5. 

  • Sunday to Wednesday - a minimum of 60 children
  • Thursday to Saturday - a minimum of 100 children

Please note - Your booking is subject to you providing 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.
