The Natureland Seal Sanctuary in Skegness, Lincolnshire, UK, is a fabulous place for a half day out.
Some of the attraction was closed when we visited and we didn’t eat, drink or shop their but managed to enjoy a couple of hours there.
For the £6 each entry fee for myself and my husband, we felt it was good value.
Where is the Natureland Seal Sanctuary in Skegness?
It sits on North Parade in Skegness. It is around ½ a mile away from the Skegness Clock Tower.
What are the attractions within Natureland Seal Sanctuary
You can see the adult seals both from above and through windows to see them swimming.
When safety allows, the sanctuary will recommence feeding talks.
The sanctuary breed Seals, so you may be lucky enough to see a pup before it is released into the wild.
These were my favourite to watch, there was one in particular that seemed to like to sit in the pool, very cute!
Rescued Seal Pups in Hospital
The rescued Seal pups are cared for by the Seal Hospital and then released back into the wild when they are recovered.
The Penguins are kept in a nice sized enclosure, so you can get all around them for a good view.
There have been baby Penguins in the past, so you may be lucky to see one on your visit!
There are 3 Meerkats at the Sanctuary, they were chilling during our visit, so we didn’t see them stand.
I understand they have a heat lamp. The first time I saw Meerkats under a heat lamp was in Nuremberg Zoo in Germany, in the snow. They very much looked to be enjoying the warmth!
The breeds in pets’ corner may be fed by visitors. I got the impression one tiny rustle of the food bag and they were up and out there to enjoy some tasty morsels!
- Guinea Pigs
- Koi Carp
There are 3 Alpacas at the Sanctuary and like the breeds in pets corner, they enjoy visitors providing them with a tasty snack!
