8 of us went there and had a great time. Lots of information from the staff when feeding the seals and penguins. Well worth the entrance fee. Will go there again next time we visit Skegness.

Hi there! We are 99% wheelchair accessible, with the only exception being the end of our reptile house, where there is a set of steps. Everywhere else is definitely wheelchair accessible!
