Loads of great animals, insects, fish and flowers. Kids loved it, and if you see the Flamingo standing near the path in the greenhouse, move your finger slowly from side to side in front of him/her. She will do a wonderful dance for you if she is in the mood!

Have been to natureland many years ago as a child, and now i find my self bringing my own children. both of my girls adored it. The best part of the visit for them was the Harbour Seals and rescue stories.

Just a wonderful place that does such vital work for our seals. We have just been for our annual visit and, as always, we have had a lovely time there. Staff that do such wonderful work with such dedication and passion, that it is hard not to be moved by a visit here. We visit every year and never tire... More

Spent a couple of hours here on saturday, well worth the money, lovely clean place, clean restaurant and toilets. The animals were just lovely, the seals were great fun even when they were not being fed they were acting so funny, and the rescued seal pups were just gorgeous. Its not very big but they have reptile house, an aquarium,... More

Family of 2 adults, 3 children under 10. I've rated it a 4/5 because of the amazing work they do saving the seals. It is definitely worth a visit however I'd say we were there about an hour and that was enough so it was quite expensive in that we weren't there very long. I have been in the past... More

Thank you very much, I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit. The average visit time is actually about two hours - try to take in a feeding time, this is fun and informative and this alone takes about twenty minutes, then there all of the other exhibits to see as well. Hope to see you again soon. More

We went with 2 young children, two and half and a one year old. They absolutely loved it. Great for parents as they can run around on their own and choose which animals they want to see. Both loved the seals and the Penguins. Really worth a visit. A1 attraction :)

Excellent place to spend half a day,- fairly priced especially if you get the voucher online for a free child entry, slightly annoyed that the seal keeper enticed everyone over to the feeding area for the 2baby seals and then proceeded to talk about the role of the sanctuary for 15mins and then walking round selling expensive merchandise. A lovely... More

Thank you for your review, very pleased that you enjoyed your visit. The seal feed does include an opportunity for people to buy from a selection of four souvenirs (from £1 to £2) - this money helps us to continue our work rescuing orphaned and injured seal pups. Purchasing these is entirely voluntary, please don't feel you have to buy... More

I don't know what Maknali means so can't comment on that. However, our staff are always out and about tending to the exhibits / gardening etc. There are regular feeding times throughout the day when you can ask any questions you may have. The gift shop has gifts from as cheap as 50p - we only stock well made, CE... More
