Embark on a journey through the world’s oceans. Travelling from oceans past and into the future, you will explore over 5,000 different species amongst 50 different displays. From the shallow tropical lagoons to the darkest depths of the coldest oceans, you will marvel at the incredible diversity of life beneath the waves.

The Deep aims to create a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the world’s oceans through stunning marine life, interactive displays and presentations to daily dive shows that deliver the wow factor. With a fun-packed calendar of events perfect for the whole family, there is always something going on. Fully accessible to all, we ensure that everyone can get up close to their favourite critter. 

An education charity, all money made is re-invested into pioneering research, conservation activities and new exhibits.

Although we make every attempt to keep queues to a minimum, please be aware that there will be a queuing system on busy days (including weekends and school holidays). The Deep tends to be busier when it is raining. We strongly recommend visitors to arrive at The Deep at 10am when we open or after 2pm to avoid the crowds. Car parking can become full during school holidays, but alternative car parks can be found close by. 

Customer safety

The Deep takes the safety and security of its staff and visitors seriously and continues to work with Counter Terrorism Police Officers to review security regimes on a regular basis. We reserve the right to carry out random bag searches at reception. To minimise delays, please avoid bringing large bags and rucksacks into the attraction.
