Welcome to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek

Situated in 40 acres of stunning Cornish countryside, The Seal Sanctuary in Gweek is the only fully operational seal rescue centre in Cornwall. Our seal sanctuary provides a lifeline for stray, sick and injured seal pups which have been discovered around the Cornwall coast. Come and meet our residents, enjoy our wide open spaces & enjoy a relaxing drink or snack in our Seal Sanctuary Cafe.
