  • This was a great place to visit whilst in Skegness, even as a solo traveler. The park is compact, but this is reduces the amount of walking needed to see everything. My recommendation for visiting in the summer is to go early into the reptile house because you'll need to cool off when to come out. You can get real close to the animals and the feeding time talks are worth the wait.
  • This is a great seal sanctuary, its fairly small but quite a lot to look at. The feeding talks are good too and its nice to know that the seal pups are rescued, nursed back to health and then released back into the sea. I would say it is worth the money to get in and the staff are always really friendly
