Took my polish wife here and she loved it, even in winter it's ok. Animals seem happy and lots for children to do. Best to visit in spring/summer as all animals will be on site, lovely staff and good price. Be sure to buy something in shop as all monies is ploughed back to benefit animals

Thank you for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you both enjoyed your winter visit to Natureland. Spring and summer are great times to visit - the tropical butterflies are a fantastic thing to see and are a huge favourite, especially if you are into photography. They will be back for Easter and get better and better as the... More

We love the sea sanctuary, it's such a good thing they are doing to help the seals! It doesn't cost much to go and there's lots there to look at! The best bit is that they allow dogs to go in, we had 4 dogs with our family and it made it so much better to be able to take... More

More than expected! Feeding time with the seals and penguins was lively and most informative. The exotic birds in the Floral Palace were a lovely surprise and entertaining as they courted and flitted about. Wide variety of fish in the aquaria and the Sea Life exhibit, fantastic corals and sea anemones as well. Super value for money.

This was my second visit to the Sanctuary. Great to see that even in January the staff were enthusiastic and friendly. For not much more than the price of a pint we thoroughly enjoyed our hour and a half and great to see the work they are doing for the animals in their care. The crocodile exhibition is also very...
