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.

Natureland Seal Sanctuary reviews
Amazing to see rescued seals in the ‘seal hospital’, the sanctuary as a whole is very well maintained more »
A Visit to Natureland seal sanctuary is a must while visiting Skegness . It is so nice to see the seals , aswell as the other animals , well done for the work that is put in to look after them... more »
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
