My partner and I visited this place on his birthday this year, the seals are so cute and I like the fact they have all been rescued from skegness beaches, they even have a hospital to treat injured seals and a special pool for the baby seals. They also have meerkats, farm animals and a reptile house, well worth a... More

Visited here on a rainy day and wanted to pass the time. The centre is small but there is plenty of animals to see. The centre do an excellent job of caring for rescued seals. There are seals, meerkats, reptiles, rabbits, sheep, butterflies, fish and penguins. You can watch the animals being fed and the adult seals will put a... More

excellent place to visit. see the carp which are huge and give them food they really come up to the surface. penguins are delightful as are the meerkats. feeding the sheep and goats is danger as they really seem very hungry so much so that they actually took the bag as well. fish in aquarium are a delight especially the...

I visited here with my three children in August. I have been many times myself growing up and like to make a point of going when I am in Skegness. Myself and my girls love it there and really liked seeing the seals waving. My five year old was very amused!

Spent a few hours here at nature land, it was great to watch the animals being fed and learning about their stories of how they came to Natureland and how most of them will be released back into their own environment at some point. All monies raised goes to help maintain & feed the rescued animals. They get no help... More

Lovely, friendly and knowledgable staff, a real treat watching feeding time also wonderful that seals are rehabilitated here before being released into the wild. And a snip at just £8!

Visited now a few times whilst on a working holiday supporting adults with LD. This is a lovely little rescue centre for seals and a great cause to support, with added attractions/animals, reptiles, fish etc. Very interesting and definitely worth a visit. Somebody was heard saying it was expensive, but all proceeds go to rescuing seals and seal pups, so... More

I was part of a group of (around) 15 that went to the Natureland Seal Sanctuary and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We all arrived before opening time (10am) as we were all excited to see the first feed (11.30am). I was glad that we arrived before as we got to look around all of the grounds (reptiles, butterflies and... More

Thank you for your lovely review and opportunity to reply to your comments. The reptiles are fed at different times of the day and sometimes on alternate days (eg the crocodiles) so it would be very difficult to advertise a specific time for doing this . Space is also a bit of a problem as people wouldn't all be able... More
