The adjacent car park is perfectly located in-between the Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary & Wildlife Centre and Ferryboat Pub with access to the beach via a path through the dunes.  Please note the car park is owned by East Lindsey District Council and NOT the Seal Sanctuary. There is a £2 charge for all day parking which is perfectly located for visiting us and spending time on the beach.

All profits from the Gift Shop go towards the care of our resident and rescued animals.

The Clinton Keeling Education Room

Watch the short film to find out what goes on behind the scenes, identify that strange creature you found on the beach (from lug worms to sperm whales) and in the spring you may be lucky enough to see live pictures from a blue tit’s nest-box.  We named this room to commemorate a zoologist who spent a lifetime inspiring others.  So, in that spirit, if you want to know more, please ask.


The venue is wheelchair and pram accessible.  Dogs are not allowed expect for guide dogs but a lockable kennel is available.
