Great family day out with my 13yrs 10 yrs old kids: initially they were bored with the idea, but as soon as we entered the sanctuary they fell in love witrh a seal pup

“Winter Prices Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Excellent place to visit. Winter prices make it really cheap. Lots to see. Little one loved the penguins and crocodiles! Not expecting to see as many different animals as we did. We had the whole place to ourselves. Our toddler could toddle to his hearts content! Can thoroughly recommend. Great cause too - they rely on donations.

Sounds like you really enjoyed yourselves which is just what we want to hear. The winter prices have been well received - but try to come back again in the summer - your toddler will love the tropical butterflies!

It is always great to see all the work they carry out. The Meerkats were so cute. The butterflies were open this time, and wow well worth a look.

Thanks for your great review, the meerkats are a huge favourite with everybody. The butterflies are on display from April to October and they have been fantastic again this year.
Thanks again, hope to see you again soon.

“A worth while visit. You should do it too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

I've only just returned home after a short break in Skegness and thought I'd write a short review as my wife and I really enjoyed our visit. The seals were cute and interesting in equal measures. The member of staff that we spoke to was friendly, informative and passionate about the welfare of the seals and their well being. The other animals in the Sanctuary were a bonus, the penguins being a highlight. Great value for money. Thank you for helping to make our trip to Skegness something to remember!
