More than just seals! Penguins, goats, rabbits, Guinea pigs plus a reptile house, aquarium and butterfly house! An unexpected great day out at a bargain price!

We had a wonderful morning here where my 2 yr old loved seeing the seals being fed, feeding the goats himself and seeing - his favourite - penguins. The adults among us enjoyed the butterfly garden too - the exotic butterflies are beautiful. The morning was topped off by the very friendly staff and lovely cake served in the cafe. Well worth a visit.

We came to Natureland on a rainy and cold day while staying for the first time at Butlins and it was a wonderful morning out! The staff at reception, in the enclosure and in the cafe were all lovely and the place itself had a great variety of animals. We watched the seal feeding which was great, really worth standing out in the rain for! The food was really reasonable and tasty. For the price it really is fantastic. Thank you for a lovely morning; my 3.5 year old son Oscar was thrilled. The tropical birds and butterflies were closed off due to bird flu in the area and some repairs but this didn’t matter. They even reduced the price to make up for this. Brilliant.

This is an amazing organisation that help sick wild seal pups get better, which are then returned in to the wild. They do an absolutely amazing job. I love Natureland as it's not over big and has a few different areas to explore. The reptile house is fascinating and we loved the aquarium too. Only saw 2 butterflies though in the butterfly House which was a bit disappointing. This place must be visited and supported for their great work.

We thought the price (£8.50 for seniors) was reasonable and we spent a couple of hours here watching the seals being fed and listening to the very informative commentary. It was a bit early in the season (April) for the butterflies but we did see a couple fluttering about. The finches should have been flying free but were penned in a cage due to bird flu. The penguins too were kept inside. We enjoyed seeing the alpacas and visiting the aquarium and the reptile house. The gift shop was too expensive. We went to the cafe where we were charged about £1.90 and told to help ourselves to paper cups, tea bags and make our own tea.

Beautiful place to visit if you have a spare few hours. A small selection of animals and attractions inside but everything was easy to find and well spaced out. The penguins had been moved inside due to bird flu but upon arrival we was told which area they was in so we could go and see them. A good sized gift shop with prices starting at £1.50

Such a lovely little place! We happily spent a couple of hours watching the seals and seeing the other animals. Informative talks from the handlers doing the feeds. The seals are so cute and entertaining! We went with teenagers and even they enjoyed it. Would definitely visit again. Wasn't too busy either, even though it was Easter school holidays.

We had a great day at Natureland.I think they do an amazing job rescuing the seals and treating them for various injuries and illnesses .They get no support so rely on holidaymakers visiting .There are also Meerekats ,penguins ,and goats, a coffee shop and gift shop and it is an enjoyable experience .I would recommend a visit to anyone visiting Skegness as at £6.75 per adult it is good value for money .
