Visited a day after an orphaned seal pup was rescued from the sea, we saw the other baby seal that was recovering well, and the other seals were well kept and looked happy in their large tank. There was so much more there than I had imagined! Meerkats with a great run, and you can see them being fed, which... More

Nice attraction to visit with young children won't take long to get around but with young children they will love it especially watching the Seals being fed and getting the opportunity to feed the fish and goats. Recommend to a family with young children to take a pack lunch and enjoy the afternoon out at this place we enjoyed it... More

Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed your visit. Average visit time is about two hours, some people take a lot longer. We have a picnic area near the aquarium for people who bring picnics, or we have a great cafe serving hot and cold food, drinks etc. See you again soon. More

Enjoyed the visit but think it's overpriced for what is there. The baby seal was so cute, croc house was smelly and dark but overall it killed an hour

Average visit time is about two hours - there's loads to see here. Butterflies, penguins, seals, meerkats, reptile house, aquarium, sheep, goats, rabbits and guinea pigs, aviaries, aquarium etc. Don't miss feeding time. We are about half the price of other sealife style of attractions around the country, so great value really! Thanks, hope to see you again sometime. More

Visited Natureland on a very hot day in July and spent an enjoyable few hours looking at the animals. The seals are definitely the star attraction and the feeding time is informative and fun to watch. Despite it not being a large site there is plenty to see; feeding the goats/sheep/rabbits, watching the seals and walking through the butterfly area.... More

A great place to take the kids,as well as being informative it's also good fun too,the penguins are funny,especially at feeding time! Abd the goats are really greedy,the seals are lovely and the staff are very well trained,a good place to spend a couple of hours.

Thanks for your great review and kind comments. We try to mix education, entertainment and conservation so that people can hopefully learn a little while they are here but still have a fun time - sounds like we are getting it right! Thanks again. More

I have visited nature land since I was very young and have always loved it until I went recently with my partner and only spent 30 minutes at the most in the sanctuary and it was all to expensive and the animals didn't seen happy and it was distressing me. Not happy!!

You didn't appear happy with your visit yet you have still given us 5 stars which is quite odd. However, all I can say is that the average visit to Natureland is a good two hours - feeding times are not to be missed and take 20 - 30 minutes so I don't know how you got round in half... More

Great day out. Interesting to learn about how Natureland works. We arrived just before feeding time and it was great to see the seals, baby seals and penguins being fed

Thanks for that. Feeding time includes a brief talk about how and why we get involved with rescuing seals. We have released very nearly 700 back to the wild so far. Hope to see you again soon. More
