We visited The Deep for the first time this weekend and it was amazing!

You start at the top of the building and the gently-sloping walkway leads you down through the exhibit past prehistoric skeletons, interactive games, cute waddling penguins, and into the heart of the attraction; the HUGE tank!

It was mesmerising.

The tank was filled with hundreds of marine animals from giant fish, to graceful sharks, to rays that were bigger than me! The floor to ceiling viewing areas draw you in and there is even a walk through area to get you as close to the action as possible.

As if all that wasn’t magical enough, The Deep have prepared something extra special for the Christmas Season…

This is the famous Hull Land Train (H Choo 1) decked out in festive trinkets! We booked the 3:30 slot so night was already falling as we bundled into our cosy carriage.

The driver gave us a guided tour of Hull and even threw in a bit of “The wheels on the train” and “Spongebob Square Pants” (much to the delight of our kids!)

The Deep also have a very important visitor between 11am and 4pm… yup you guessed it – Father Christmas! He has a little grotto right next to the big tank, and he loves it when the children come to visit him. He’s even sneaked a few prezzies along with him from the North Pole to give to the children.

You’ll have a whale (!) of a time!
