Every year for over 10 years me and my family go to skegness and almost every year we visit the seal sanctuary. We enjoy feeding the goats but the place as a whole isn't excellent for the price. We do like to go but I think it has potential to have more or at least lower the prices.

Thank you for visiting again. We feel our prices compare very favourably with other similar attractions, both locally and nationally. Don't forget that we rely entirely on visitor spend to enable us to continue our work rescuing seal pups. We do not receive any lottery funding, government or council grants or subsidies to support us. Check out our website for... More

My children loved seeing a Seal as soon as you entered the attraction. It made them feel like Mr/Mrs Seal was welcoming them to their home. Not only do they have Seal's but a Butterfly house which i found to my favourite part. A small section with goats, chickens and a turkey. Plus other animals and reptilians. I would say... More

Never get tired of seeing the sea lions and feeding some of the varied animals knowing that the admission fee helps to look after them all. Grandchildren love to go as a couple of hours out and a treat. As well as sea lions and the hospital there are meerkats, goats, chickens, rabbits, penguins an aquarium, butterfly house etc. Nice...

Sometimes we are all guilty at possibly judging places from the exterior, but Natureland is an amazing place. Family owned with the clear message that the wildlife conservation and enjoyment are the only reasons for its existence. The seal santuary and hospital are great and provide great views for toddlers. The meercats looked like the Skegness winter weather was a... More

We had a great time at Natureland. It only took a few hours to go round but was worth the money. There was talks and feeding times displayed so you could plan what you wanted to do and the talks were informative and were great to watch. The animals all seemed happy even the seals in the seal hospital!! which... More
