The Deep 

If you’ve been studying Hull for the last few months, there’s an extremely large possibility that you’ve heard about The Deep. Billed as ‘the world’s only submarium’, The Deep is home to thousands of marine animals including penguins and seven shark species. The main cafe at The Deep offers spectacular views of the Humber Estuary and is the perfect place to switch up your study spot. We’d of course recommend taking a walk around the aquarium for a unique experience however if you just want to use the cafe to study, you can visit the main cafe without needing to pay for the main attraction.
