Please meet at 10.45 am at the Market Place car park, Doncaster

As usual all DonMentia trips are completely free to all participants, but there is an expectation that if you sign to join in then you are willing to pay £30 per person if you drop out after 6th March, as DonMentia will have already incurred expenses on the basis of your original agreement

(or – last minute only: 07796 653682)
The bus will leave the Market Place car park in Doncaster at 11.00am to go to The Deep, Hull, a journey that will take approximately an hour and fifteen minutes. After you have been booked in take the lift up to the 5th floor, which is the start of the route through the aquarium. The restaurant and other facilities are also on the 5th floor. Lunch will be served at 12.30pm in the Observatory, (tbc) an upper area to the restaurant, where there will be a choice of meals. The time is then free to enjoy the watery sights and attractions. (the Observatory will not be free until 1pm so it has been decided to wait until then to eat as it will be more private)
On entering the aquarium, you will become aware that the light levels are low and the floor has a gradual slope downwards. It is suggested that you stand still and wait until your eyes have adjusted to the new situation. The area then opens up and is light and bright with a lot of activity. This is where the top water fish are situated and as you progress downwards the varying types of fish become evident until you come to the larger, deep-water fish at the lower levels.
There are no distinct floors as there is a gradual progression downwards but there are lifts and toilets on all levels as well as many places to sit down.
We will then take the bus back to Doncaster at 3.30pm, returning to the same car park at approximately 4.45pm.
