The Deep

On Wednesday, DC, myself and his family took a trip to The Deep, the world's only submarium, in Hull. I have been here once before (years ago) when the aquarium first opened and was so excited to go back - it is something I have been talking about doing for ages! I love the sea, watching ocean documentaries and being near water so this was perfect.

Within the giant triangular building, you will find exhibit after exhibit of all types of sea creatures - from tropical through to cold water, from sharks to tiny shrimps and insects - plus fascinating facts about sea life, the various effects of global warming and over-fishing on the environment, for example, and a look into what the future could possibly hold. For the children, there is a play area, and the adults can enjoy a hot cup of tea and a slice of cake in the cafe. It's all indoors so it is perfect for rainy day activities with the kids (like we had!), and there certainly is a lot to see and do, so you certainly get your money's worth; you can find a lot more information on the website.

Admittedly, it was a very, very last minute trip - we all arrived at Elsham Hall with our picnics to find it was chucking it down, and so carried on over the Humber Bridge to the north bank to The Deep. Because of this, I don't have many photos from the trip; we were concentrating on getting inside the venue and out of the rain so I don't have a photograph of the (very impressive) building, and because it was so busy inside, it was quite difficult to take images of the exhibits. But, I wouldn't be a good little blogger if I didn't at least try, would I?

So, taken with my trusty camera phone,  here are just a few pictures from the day.



















I cannot wait to go back to fully take in the exhibits and take some more (quality) images so I can give you a more in depth post. However, I hope these few images give you a little taster of what to expect. It really is a fascinating day out and, so far, the highlight of my week long staycation.

For more information on The Deep, it's opening times and admission prices (including information on year long free admission!), click here. Now I am going to watch repeats of the Ocean series on BBC and pretend I am in a warm, sunny climate admiring the sea creatures from the comfort of a boat...
