What a great place to take small children, on entering you are mobbed by an array of different water birds all keen for you to feed them. Buy plenty of feed at the shop as you will need it. Visit Dippy the penguin, great fun trying to spot him amongst his friends. Tropical house is great but watch out for... More

We visited twice - once on the Friday of October half term, very busy but lots of opportunities to interact with the animals at feeding time, and once on the Saturday morning - think we were first through the gates and had a great time feeding the very hungry ducks and enjoying a more quiet, leisurely experience. We went as... More

This was a great day out. The ducks and geese flapped and quacked enthusiastically when we arrived, clamouring for food from our hands. The paths were well laid-out and my young son loved running along them, then over the little bridge and past the bushes. Feeding the penguins was a treat and everyone had the opportunity to feed a fish... More

We had a lovely few hours at Seaview, the venue is exceptionally clean throughout, all the enclosures are well maintained and there is a genuine feeling of care and love for the occupants of Seaview Wildlife. We arrived just after opening time and the ducks were very happy to eat the food we'd bought for them, which was the highlight... More

We went to Seaview Wildlife Encounter during the October half-term and had a wonderful day. We were one of the first through the gates and were welcomed by an army of fowl ready to liberate us of our duck food (I'd recommend buying multiple bag and saving it for later in the day as well). The whole experience was excellent,... More

We visited on a really wet Wednesday during half term and park was not at all busy we had a family ticket which was £32 and we had 2 bags of seed to feed the ducks which were 75p each. They have a good selection of animals here for a relatively small park but the highlight for my partner and... More

We read the reviews and thought we'd check it out not really expecting too much but how wrong could we be. It was fabulous, the park itself is very pretty and well kept and a really good layout. The interaction between the birds and animals is something unique and my children adored feeding the ducks by hand, brushing and feeding... More

Went as 4 adults on a short island trip. Good value for a great little park which, as the name suggests, has super sea views. Lots of care put into the park for a relatively small size area. Lots put together. Talks very good and an excellent opportunity to get so close to the animals. Great interactive talks. The penguins... More

This is a fabulous park perfect for children and adults the penguins and pelicans were a favourite of ours. We were welcomed by loads ( and I mean loads) of ducks so buying the duck food is definitely recommended to help get through the croud.
