Our £500,000 refurbishment of the Lagoon of Light and Coral exhibit is now nearing completion and you can see the new look Lagoon of Light in its final stages of construction. We have now added the water and over the coming weeks we will be adding the sand, adjusting the pH and preparing the filtration system. You may notice the water is currently cloudy as we rinse the remaining dust and dirt left over from the build. The water quality will be nice and clear, with a mature filtration system, ready for the colourful fish, sharks and rays to be added later in the month.

The rest of The Deep's displays are open as normal. 

Senior £8.50

The Deep offers a group booking discount for pre-booked parties of 10 or more paying visitors. Please do not include any essential carers within your party as they are admitted free of charge on a 1:1 basis for visitors who have additional needs.

The Deep can be busy, both in term time and during the school holidays, so large groups are advised to consider visiting later in the day (from 1pm onwards).
