Things to do at Cornish Seal Sanctuary review

Located in Gweek, Cornwall is the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. They are a registered charity that rescues and rehabilitates grey seal pups from around the Cornish coastline. You and your family can visit the centre and help support the rescue of the seal pups.

Each season from September to March the sanctuary rehabilitates over 70 seal pups that have been rescued for a variety of reasons.
