The dramatic building which overlooks the Humber estuary was designed by Sir Terry Farrell. Beijing and Charing Cross railway stations were designed by Farrell who also created the original masterplan for Newcastle which led to the regeneration of the Quayside now famous for the Baltic Arts Centre, Gateshead Millennium Bridge and The Sage Music Centre.
The Deep is only a few minutes walk from Hull Marina and is operated as a charity dedicated to increasing enjoyment and understanding of the world’s oceans.
