4.4
#1 of 75 in Parks in Lincolnshire
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.

  • We visited last week and had a lovely time. I used a voucher on their website to get 10% off entry. The children loved watching the seals through the window, so they could watch the under water antics! They also really enjoyed watching the penguins and the birds. These guys do some amazing work with the seals. I go whenever I take my children on holiday there.
  • Really good place to see animals up close and personal. The butterfly house is awesome for people who like the insects. The seal shows are really cool and educational at the same time. Would 100% recommend!
  • Natureland is worth a look. It's reasonably priced, especially with discount vouchers from their website, does great conservation and rescue work and is an entertaining place to spend a couple of hours. If your visit takes in feeding time then so much the better as it's really entertaining for small children. Not the biggest attraction, but then again but the most expensive either.
  • This is a lovely little place for all the family. Lots of different animal areas, not just seals. Nice big restaurant and gift shop. The butterfly house is really pretty. My son enjoyed feeding the goats.
  • Very good place to get up close to some of Britain's coastal wildlife. With a sea life exhibit, aquarium, 2 seal pools, reptile house, meerkats, and more, there's plenty to see. Natureland also rescues seals along the coast and rehabilitates them in their own seal hospital. The rescues pups can be seen in their enclosures, or in the outdoor pool. Entry is fairly priced, and the animals are fed several times a day for your enjoyment. Natureland does not receive any grants or funding, a visit is encouraged for everyone who supports wildlife conservation.
