SEA LIFE Hunstanton contains the only seal hospital in Norfolk that’s open to visitors. The Wash and surrounding areas along the Norfolk coast are home to both grey seals and the densest population of common seals in the country. Since opening the hospital in 1989, SEA LIFE Hunstanton has helped rescue and rehabilitate more than 750 seals. Visitors can see patients recovering in the seal hospital and socializing in the pool.
