The main attraction here is that the seals are so cute. And you have to feel sorry for them as they have been rescued, some were close to death but on the mend. The butterfly house was also excellent, some amazing examples that were actually better than a dedicated butterfly attraction we went to.

This place is only small but its on the beach front and well worth a visit.

Thank you very much - the butterfly house is amazing, the sunny weather is really suiting them and loads are hatching everyday, a photographers dream.

I live in Skegness and usually visit once a year and each time there is a new addition. Definitely worth a visit if you haven't been before!

I enjoyed Natureland,I don't agree with the not so good reviews.I enjoyed it as much as a visit to a big zoo,and it's just a nice size to get round. It's a good place for adults and children alike. It has a nice café and gift shop.
It's worth going just to see the seals,but there's a lot more to see as well.The feeding time is a must,the seals are so cute,and the penguins too.I love butterflies,so I had to spend some time in the tropical house. There are also meerkats,fish and some farm animals

we enjoyed several hours here. we got in with some vouchers (1 child free per 1 adult) so it wasn't too costly-but would seem a bit expensive to some families if they had to pay for everyone. Def worth googling voucher websites beforehand.
Anyway once in we were delighted with the seals, penguins, sheep, turkey, meercats, reptiles, fish, etc.. the gift shop was also rather nice and not too pricey.
there was also a number of tables for you to sit at with your own food; so we enjoyed a picnic there.
watching feeding times was really fun, and informative too.

well done seal sanctuary - good work!
