The Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary is located at the north end of the town on Quebec Road, and is very close to Golden Sands Holiday Park. There are a good variety of animals for people of all ages to enjoy here, and it's an excellent trip for the family with an added opportunity to learn some new things about wildlife.
A carpark is available for you to use if you are travelling to this venue from the other side of the town, it is very well positioned between the venue itself and the Ferryboat pub, the beach can also be easily accessed from here. During the peak weeks of the season a small charge is made for the use of the carpark.
We all have our favourites when it comes to seeing animals, and you wont be left disappointed after your visit to the Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary. Below are some of the wildlife you can expect to see during your trip.

OTHER THINGS TO DO AT THE VENUE
Time walking at the venue gives you the chance to walk back through the years, and look at all of the animals that once lived in Lincolnshire. With lots of fossils to look for this is great fun whilst also being very educational, this includes a prehistoric animal section also.
There is a nice garden area and café for you to enjoy during your visit, so when you're ready to take a break refreshments are available.
If you would like a memory to take with you, then there is also a gift shop selling souvenirs so you can remember your trip, all monies from any sales are used to look after the animals at the sanctuary.
