Maritime city - check. Kids - check. Strange sea monsters - check. The Deep is always a winner of a family day out, this award-winning aquarium is home to over 5000 animals. So dive in and explore, see the only pair of Green sawfish in the UK, amazing sharks and rays, Loggerhead sea turtles and a colony of Gentoo penguins! Take a walk through the viewing tunnel and take a glass lift ride through the 10m deep tank.
Budding little artists will have a whale of a time at Ferens Art Gallery. It's free to enter (so more pennies for ice cream!) and features a magnificent collection of paintings and sculptures. But it's the upstairs Children's Gallery that always proves itself to be a real masterpiece - this 'gallery within a gallery' makes art and history accessible to younger visitors and could bring out a real creative spark too.
If you set your compass and travel one mile northwest of the centre, you'll reach the fabulous Pearson Park. Featuring a small serpentine lake, a broad carriage drive and a Victorian-style conservatory, adults and children alike will fall in love with its timeless charms. Why not make a full day of it and pack a picnic, plus there's plenty of room to run around after a football or frisbee if your tribe is feeling extra lively.
