About Cornish Seal Sanctuary

Now reopened after lockdown

Experience animal welfare in action in Cornwall's only Seal Sanctuary and rescue centre. Hear about dramatic rescues and meet the seal and sea lion characters whose individual stories are bought to life during your visit.

The Sanctuary is also home to fun loving otters, playful penguins, potty paddock animals and a rock pool hosting a wide range of marine creatures.

Tucked against the picturesque backdrop of the Helford River, the Sanctuary is a designated site of special scientific interest and an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Our 40 acre centre also boasts a woodland quiz trail, cafe with undercover seating and two gift shops.

Don't miss out on our great all year round events calendar.
