Onces a year we take our grandson to see the seals. He takes it all in, likes to see all the animals as well as the seals and penguins. A walk through the butterfly green house goes down well, you have to look everywere, to see the butterfly's. You can also feed some of the animals. I have to say... More

This review is especially about the fun day they held to mark to their 50th birthday. There was facepainting for the kiddies, everyone... More

Also the feeding man selling gifts to the children is again a bit much on top of the entrance fee charged. Make it one... More

They do good work caring for lost and injured seals and the aquarium is something to see. Easy to get to a bus stops outside or you can walk it takes about 15 mins.

Is a small place but is a great place to visit. Animals are well looked after and staff are very friendly. Feeding time at the sanctuary is really enjoyable also. Definitely recommend!

So nice to see the animals, we love to visit here every time we go to Skegness! It never gets dull, the animals are so sweet and it's always nice to know you are donating to the rescue of the seal's and protection of the animals, with donations and entry money into the sanctuary.
