Journey to The Deep

Watch the YouTube video here.

Good evening, I hope you’re all having a good day!

Today, I went to The Deep in Hull which, for those of you who don’t know, is an Aquarium. I’ve never been before but I’ve always heard great things about it, so me and Pal decided to go and check it out…


…and we weren’t disappointed! I really loved how the place was set out, starting from the beginning with ocean fossils then leading to each part of the sea and the animals that live there.



The clownfish tank was one of my favourites, and every child there was shouting ‘Nemo!’ but it didn’t beat my all time favourite, the jellyfish


I could honestly watch jellyfish for hours. The way they move looks so magical and the lighting really showed their movements as they glided through the water.


Another interesting part of the trip was the frog displays. I’ve never seen frogs as part of an aquarium display before, so naturally I was really excited.

Their colours were so vibrant, and the little golden one was tiny, it was so adorable!


Another great part was the penguin enclosure, where you could see them above the water as well as below it. Watching them diving, swimming, eating and grooming was really interesting.


Near to the end of the displays was this tank, which unfortunately didn’t come out great in my photo.

The tank is filled with plastic bottles, discarded litter and garbage. There are no fish in this tank, and it’s there to show us what effect we have on the ocean through littering.

When I was looking at it, a child said  “There’s nothing in there!” and her mum responded with “Of course there isn’t, nothing can survive with that amount of rubbish, that’s why we need to be very careful.” I really hope that this message gets across, it’s definitely a smart way of showing it!


Overall I had a really good day out here and I would recommend it to anybody. There’s plenty to see and lots to read and take part in along the way.
