Deep Sea World is located underneath the iconic Forth Rail Bridge, in the quaint village of North Queensferry. Deep Sea World is one of the premier attractions in Scotland, offering fun for the whole family, no matter what their age. Come along and see our spectacular underwater tunnel and come face to face with one of Europe's largest collection of Sand Tiger sharks and even dive with them...If you're feeling brave enough!

Decided to visit this place while we stayed in Edinburgh as only 30-minute train journey from the Waverley station. Nice small centre with apparently the longest underwater tunnel, which was great as it has a moving walkway (until it stopped when wanted to go round...More

Admission price was £15.00 each. No logical direction in how to go round the venue. Quite interesting I would say for young children possibly. The sharks were good though the conveyor belt was extremely squeaky and felt as if it was going to come to...More

Felt this attraction was shabby, run down, lacked interest, untidy. There is so much that could be done to make this a fantastic place to visit. Expensive for the hour I was there. Very disappointing. The gift shop stocked much in the way of junk...More

Unless you want to see all the great talks that both facilities have to offer the two could be easily accomplished in a day. Deep sea world is open from 10am to 5pm but you want to be there at least one hour before closing... More

Hi, best to look on their website as they have different types of tickets ie family tickets, advanced and flexi tickets etc It may also be worth keeping an eye on Groupon and Itson for reduced tickets. Hope that helps.
