Been here now many times both in the past and quite recently, and I've loved it every single time!! There's lots to see and it's also a great opportunity for photography lovers, like myself. Planning to come again this year, looking forward to it. Very friendly staff and the talks are extremely informative, and a little bit funny at times,... More

Thank you for your fantastic review and support over the years. We are very popular with photographers as you can get very close to the animals and birds - the baby seals offer some great opportunities. Thanks again, see you again soon. More

if you go, look for vouchers. we paid £24.50 for a family ticket for an attraction that you can walk round in about 1hour. As it is self funding I don't feel too bad about it, but would have preferred to pay less. Oh, and if you go to the baby seals feeding time talk, they want you to buy... More

Thanks for your review. The average visit time is about two hours, Some people stay a lot longer, so we feel our admission prices are very fair compared to other similar sealife style attractions around the country (often twice as much as ours). But yes, look out for special offers on our website as this makes visiting even cheaper. Purchasing... More

We went on a cold February afternoon, it is dog friendly which to us is fantastic. Dogs must be on leads and are not permitted into some areas, which is only to be expected. Really clean, animals cared for by lovely informative staff. The work done at the sanctuary to support the seals back into the wild is amazing. Lots... More

Thanks for your fantastic review. We are dog owners ourselves so also appreciate dog friendly establishments. Feeding time is always a big favourite and not to be missed. Thanks again and I hope to see you again soon. More

Great place, baby seals so cute. Great what they do there. Worth going to support a worthwhile cause. We went out of season and one of the few places open on the seafront. They are committed to helping the local environment and my kids loved the visit. Meerkats and the alpacas a bonus.

Natureland Seal Sanctuary are doing a fantastic job in rehabilitating the seals however I was disappointed in the size of some of the animals enclosures and the information given as to why they are at the sanctuary and a little about each individual animal. Staff were friendly and informative. The place could do with a lick of paint however is... More

Thank you for visiting and writing your review. All the exhibits have information panels next to them giving facts about the animal, it's diet, natural habitat etc. The seals in the Hospital each have a notice saying when they were rescued and what was wrong with them. Just occasionally one will be without a notice if they have just been... More

Definitely worth the two and a half hour drive from Stockport today. £16 for a family plus £2 for a car sticker (£1.50 but 50p change donated back) people have to remember this is a sanctuary unfunded by the government to help get the seals back into their habitat. It is not a zoo. Where else could you get so... More

Great review, thank you very much. You probably came when we were charging our discounted winter admission prices which indeed makes the price just £16 for a family of four. We are now on our full price but if you use the vouchers on our website you can still all enter for the same price, £16, which we think is... More
