I'll be watching you!

You might not notice us at first, our heads bobbing just above the surface of the water. But us grey seals like to keep an eye on what's going on.

And when you get yourself down to the free viewpoint at the Discovery Centre, you can keep an eye on us, too.

When we're not about - we can hold our breath underwater for 30 minutes at a time - keep your eyes peeled for gannets and shags flying by.

You might also get lucky and see basking sharks passing along the coastline. Or maybe you'll see peregrines showing off - stooping and diving high in the skies above you.

When can you see us?

We're open every day, 10 am - 4 pm. As the weather can be unpredictable please be aware that the Centre can close at short notice.

What's at the site?

Please be aware that access to our date is along a slight slope.
