We are excited to be opening our doors and welcoming our visitors back on Monday 27 July. Find out what we are doing to make your visit safe and enjoyable for you and your family.
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.
- The Deep is open daily from 9am until 6pm on weekends and during school holidays. We are open 10am until 6pm Monday to Friday during term time.
- Last admission is at 5pm, although we recommend you to arrive no later than 4pm (on average visitors spend 2+ hours with us)

All visitors are required to book a time slot for their visit to The Deep. This is to help us manage the number of people in the building and adhere to government guidelines. Please follow directional signage and look out for floor markers when queuing to enter The Deep.
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.
