Great place to visit, the birds and animals all look well cared for, the whole park is clean and tidy with well kept gardens too. Staff are happy to chat with you about the wildlife. Its easy to spend the whole day here, so why not take a picnic and make a day of it. There is a restaurant though... More

Having previously visiting this park around 5 years ago we decided to visit again. It was so refreshing to see animals happy and so looked after by the keepers. I enjoyed all the interaction with the animals. It turned me into an animal lover. The animals were so friendly and I loved the shows that the keepers put on explaining... More

Seaview is a fantastic animal encounter park on the IOW. You get to interact with the animals, not just view them from behind a fence. Ducks, geese, penguins, meerkats, and parrots are just some of the animals here and the park has made a great effort in getting guests involved with them. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is... More

Aww this place is great but beware of the ducks who try to fleece you of food at every opportunity.. Funny little things! Animals are really well cared for, be sure to listen to the talks and get involved in the feeding times. Don't miss the wallabies you can walk through them and give them a stroke or a brush.... More

A great day out at Seaview wildlife encounter. The animal are well looked after and lots of opportunity to get up close. Make sure you but some bird seed as you will have the opportunity to feed many ducks and geese all round the park. The Wallabies are very findy and can be brushed too. The park is very clean... More

Very well kept and clean. Lovely animals, informative talks at feeding times. Food and drinks were reasonably priced, and the quality of the food was better than in most places of this sort. Altogether a very pleasant and enjoyable day

We visited Seaview after a recommendation from a friend. The children can get really close to the animals -ducks, wallabies, alpacas and even a tortoise and cockroach in the tropical house. The staff were really friendly and knowledgable. The pelican and penguin talk was really informative. What really made my son's day though was a parrot who said, "Hello" to... More

Some of these reviews make this place sound like Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds'. You are only mobbed by ducks if you CHOOSE to feed them at the entrance, do as we did - keep the feed in your pocket and feed sparingly elsewhere. Alternatively don't buy any and walk on by. The place is very good with lot's to see... More
