As other posters have said, it's the parts of the internet you won't see on a search engine, only while running tor or another such program. You have
to know the URL of the website you're trying to access as there's no search engines for hidden services.
There's everything from unindexed academic websites, private websites for science labs, companies, but most of these you need to have a username and
password and be a part of it to get access.
But if you do go, I beg you to spend alot of time researching it first, the worst things you could imagine someone would set up a website for, are on
there due to the anonymous nature of the services (not that you're truly anonymous while accessing it).
A google search for "deep web" should bring up a few forums with stories on people's experiences on there.

Edit: It's somewhat similar to what the internet used to be in it's early days, there is a vast amount of illegal and questionable content on there,
it's not all bad by any means, but a case could be made for calling it the wild west of the internet.
