Didn't think this offered the same value as the one nearby at Mablethorpe. It's very shiny and new but only dragged visit out to two hours and that included lunch

The benefit of Natureland for us is that it is dog friendly, which is quite unusual for an animal attraction. One of the seals was fascinated by our dog, and was peering at her through the glass wall! The meerkats were very comical to watch, and very inquisitive. There's a chance to feed the goats and sheep or even the... More

What went wrong you ask. Well never mind the fact it's a bunch of captive animals. Fair enough saving and releasing but the other animals shouldn't be there just so you can stare at them... Money money money that's all you people care about, not the animals welfare to be honest.

Been to visit this attraction today with my two children, £8 each for an adult is way to expensive for what it is. From Reading the reviews on here before visiting i expected it to be amazing. Its very small we struggled to stay for very long at all. We were very disapointed with it and feel the £16 we... More

Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. We are confident that our admission prices are good value for money and compare favourably with other sealife attractions around the country.

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your visit. Just to clarify - you can WATCH the seals being fed but not feed them yourselves, I think they would explode if everybody fed them!!! See you again soon. More

An excellant day out for the kids and adults, come rain or shine.There is an assortment of other animals to see. Feeding times vary and to see the children's faces when the seals are playing is amazing. A great time.

Skegness Natureland Seal Sanctuary is a great place for kids, they can watch the animals being fed, they can feed the smaller ones themselves and there is a nice café and gift shop.

luckily we had free childrens vouchers otherwise it would have been expensive. We did not feel the attractions warranted the admission price, very disappointing.
