went for a visit with my daughters aged 9 and 7, enjoyed our time here watching seals being fed and meerkats playing learning about seal hospital, staff not child friendly, a little expensive for time taken to look at everything

This is one of the best attractions in Skegness. Suitable for the whole family! There are feeding times for the seals throughout the day with talks by members of staff. Pram friendly!
