Was impressed by both the reasonable admission price and also the variety and depth in which the sanctuary held. If visiting make sure you take in one of the feeding sessions which are great

It was our first time visiting Natureland Seal Sanctuary and we were very happy with our visit. The members of staff are friendly and they were great. The Seal lecture was also great too.

Fantastic place for an afternoon/morning out. Just a 5 min walk down from the Clock Tower near the beach front. The seals are the best and always best to go at feeding time (times shown on the outside). The baby seal pool had the cutest pups in, all very amusing and inquisitive at the same time. The butterfly glasshouse was... More

However we weren`t impressed with the cafe! Hot dogs with no onions? and also the chips were dry and luke warm, I... More

Thank you for your review. I will pass on your comments to the cafe staff. Good point about the flamingo. We are fully aware that since her mate passed away that she would be better off in a large flock of flamingos at another collection, however we have not had any success rehoming her. The reason being is that there... More

I recently visited and I made sure that I went during feeding times so that I could see the animals being fed and listen to the information. All the animals looked very well looked after and it was lovely to have such a variety of animals eg. fish, reptiles and birds. The place itself is quite small so it wouldn't... More

Hope you saw everything that we have here - well worth checking the "Before you go, did you see? " sign near the exit, it's surprising how some people manage to miss an entire section. More

loved the meerkats new to the sanctuary.Seals are good with tricks. Enjoyable time.Good cup of tea and snacks or pizza and jacket potatoes. Find the price of entry a bit dear, but all money does go to keeping the venue open.And who can resist the baby seals that have been saved.
