A lovely little wildlife farm with plenty of hands on options. Feeding the ducks and Wallabies, stroking the pets and watching the animals being fed. There is also an under 5 activity room. We took our 2 half year old and we all had a very enjoyable afternoon. The prices are reasonable too.

Have just spent an entire afternoon at Seaview and my partner had to literally drag me away, so much to do, and so much to see, if you like and animal experience, then this is the place for you, from the greeting of the ducks as you walk through the gate ( they know you have food ) to the... More

Spent a good few hours here today with a family or two adults, myself (20) and my brother (18). We loved it. Great for all ages, fed the wallabys and stroked and get up close with them, sheep, alpacas, pigs. Even handled a cosckroach! There are plenty of meets and greets for animal feedings for penguins, otters, meerkats, wallabys... Loads... More

First day opening 2015. A nice afternoon out with 17yr old daughter. Fed the Wallabies, ducks, penguins, and geese. Stroked the wallabies and Alpacas. The cafe was a little expensive and disorganised with the wrong order coming to the table in fits and starts due, apparently, to new staff learning the ropes. Cafe had little selection and staff were a... More

We visit regularly with our son who has learning difficulties. We love to feed all of the hungry ducks and geese from our hands. We also enjoy feeding the wallabies and sometimes the alpacas and the highlight is always feeding fish to the penguins, which is something you can't do in many places! Probably a half day visit is enough,... More

Really good memories from this place, not a zoo! At your arrival hundreds of ducks welcome you and follow you during your visit. Penguin's and other animals are the most attraction. Recommended 100%

Organised our trip as part of our holiday to take my niece to feed the penguins as part of her birthday present. We were able to use our Tesco club card vouchers and had money left over to buy food for the animals. We were given a map to help guide us around the grounds. Wifi available in the cafe,... More

Whether it is feeding the wildfowl, penguins or wandering around the tropical gardens this place is well worth a few hours of your life and is a safe place for children to have fun and explore.

Of all the wildlife parks, that is. Well kept grounds, above all well looked after animals & birds. We've visited several times now, every one has been enjoyable. Even the refreshments are reasonably priced and of good quality - the tea is really good! Children will love it.
