Visited the Seal Santuary today and had a wonderful time, on our arrival we received a warm welcome plus the admission prices were £5 per adult which was very reasonable. We brought our dog along and the seals were very exquisitive to see her, defiantly well worth the visit will be coming back soon.

Had a very very cold visit here but it was well worth it. How pretty are seals? surely they can't bite? Lovely plants and birds too. Well worth a visit

Yes it's been pretty chilly here over the last few weeks but our work goes on all year round so it's out with the thermals until it warms up a bit!. Thanks for your review, see you again soon. More

Visited the sanctuary today and despite the cold weather we really enjoyed seeing the seals, the sanctuary do a wonderful job rescuing baby or distressed seals, it was lovely to watch them being fed, the keeper was extremely knowledgable giving us a running commentary as he fed the seals. Well worth the drive to get there .

We loved the seals, feeding time was interesting, we could take the dog and it was quiet. However there wasn't much else apart from the seals to see. I know we paid a reduced rate but the café and some attractions were shut and we struggled to fill a mere hour. We had still paid £5 each to get in.

The winter prices reflect the fact that the cafe and also the tropical butterfly exhibit aren't open at this time of year. However, all the other exhibits (aquarium, meerkats, reptile house, pets corner, penguins, seals of course, tropical birds etc) are all still here to see. So I'm sorry that you were a little disappointed and spent only an hour... More

Thanks for your great review and your ongoing support. The meerkats are hugely popular and keep active even in the chilliest of the UK weather. We even built them a snowman once which they really enjoyed destroying! See you again soon. More

A lovely place, only £5 per adult to visit during the winter months but open all year, unlike a lot of attractions. Seals are adorable and at this time of year you can see the ones recently rescued from the local area, sad to read their stories but excellent that places like this exist. Has a happy group of meerkats,... More

We went on the 3rd January 2015. This was a cheap place to go and not busy at all. We were surprised to see so many exhibits and animals! Not only are there seals, baby seals, newly rescued seals (in the hospital) but also baby meerkats, rescued crocodiles (rescued from animal smugglers), fish aquariums, reptiles, penguins and goats which we...

The Seals are adorable, the penguins are so funny and the meerkats are so cute. It is nice that it is dog friendly. Also the prices for a family were very reasonable.
