Before arriving at the Seal Sanctuary earlier on this year, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, I had done a huge amount of research on the site and all the great work they have done, but this attraction is so unique, until you get here, it's quite hard to gauge the enormity of the work they do. I couldn't get over just how professional the team are here and no matter what questions you throw at them, they will do their best to answer them and go that extra mile to help you understand the importance of the mammoth tasks they undertake on a daily basis. From new born Seal pups, to some majestic old timers, you get to experience first hand what life as a Seal is like and the dangers they face from not only human kind, but Mother Nature also. In my opinion, no trip to Cornwall is complete without a visit to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary!- Top 100 Review
