Concierge.com's insider take:
Set on 42 acres on the picturesque Helford estuary, the Marine Animal Rescue Centre is the most important of its kind in Europe. See the injured wild animals fed and tended to in the S.O.S. seal hospital, and visit with the resident seals and sea lions, and the unwanted goats, otters, and ponies also given a home here. Kids, needless to say, love it.
