Feed and interact with baby seals and penguins at Natureland Seal Sanctuary, a renowned wildlife facility dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured seal pups. Wounded seals are often found stranded all along Lincolnshire’s coast, and the sanctuary’s devoted staff runs a purpose-built hospital, where these animals are healed before being released back into the wild. Crocodiles, sheep, goats, snakes, tarantulas, scorpions, and a wide range of tropical butterflies are also cared for and protected at the sanctuary. The site features convenient tourist facilities, including a cafe, gift shop, and a small children’s play area. Visit the sanctuary website for accurate feeding times, special offers, and upcoming events.

  • Lovely place to visit. Quite small, but can easily spend 2 to 3 hours or so there. They obviously do fantastic work saving seals lives! However, I do feel that some of the housing provided is too small for the exhibits. Would definitely recommend and visit again!
  • Decent little sanctuary which is fair value for money. They had a lot of different things to see and seeing the keepers feed the seals and the penguins was pretty cool. A decent 1.5 hours spent here.
  • Really enjoyed it at this place. It only cost us £12 for two adults and an under 2 year old. They have a glass wall so you can see the seals under water too. They feed them at 11:30am and 3pm which is great to watch. Other animals include Crocodiles, Meerkats, Fish, Goats, Penguins, Guinea pigs. They also have a large butterfly garden. Overall it's a great place to take the kids.
  • Absolutely love coming here. And it improves with each experience. The staff are lovely here from the reception to the end. Animals are well looked after. 5* - keep this place going strong 💪
  • They're doing a wonderful job of caring for and rehabilitating sick and injured seals. Lovely friendly people who were a pleasure to meet. Great for children, adults and great for disabled people with easy access.
