We visited the Seaview Wildlife Experience whilst on a short break to the Isle of Wight with our granddaughter. I had visited here some time ago when it was known as ‘Flamingo Park’ and was curious to know how it looked now. The park is easy to get to by car being near Ryde and has a large car parking... More

This place is well worth a visit, although if you have any aversion to birds being around you, this is definitely not a place for you! You can buy a bag of seed at the kiosk, and the ducks come in their droves to eat out of your hands, and they follow you until you feed them which is hilarious!!... More

Went here after reading other trip adviser reviews. It's great for a half a day attraction but had managed to walk the whole way around and see 2 feeding sessions in 2 hours.

Visited sea view with my 3 yr old who loved it. Loads of birds and they roam free even into the children's play room! We fed the penguins and stroked the wallabies. We felt it was a little expensive in price but it was worth a visit.

My husband and I had a really fab day out at Seaview. In fact I am almost over my fear of ducks as a result. The park is well laid out and really interactive. Being a week after the school holidays it was quieter and allowed us to spend some quality time with the animals. We loved feeding the wallabies... More

Wifey and I visited on a sunny Saturday while visiting other venues in the area. Great entrance - greeted by hoards of ducks, so worth buying a bag of bird seed on arrival! This place has a good feel to it. Lots of animal interaction available and various feeding times going on throughout the day. Shop and Café available too.... More

We went here for a day trip as my son loves anything to do with animals. The entrance cost is reasonable considering what they have to maintain and the staff are great and very friendly. My son loved the interaction with the animals and I liked the fact it felt like a personal tour Great day
