Seaview Wildlife Encounter land goes up for sale

A former wildlife attraction has gone up for sale in Seaview. 

The Adams family, represented by Savills, put the former tourist attraction in Seaview up for sale on Monday (September 10).

The Adams family closed the park, which used to be Seaview Wildlife encounter, in 2015, at the time the family told the BBC they were “devastated”.

Located 250 metres from the seafront, the former park extends to 16 acres (6.5 hectares) and features 34,000 sq ft (3,159 sq m) of vacant buildings as well as two residential properties.

The site is now up for sale

It offers potential for redevelopment to residential houses.

The closest towns are Ryde and Newport at four and 10 miles away respectively.

Adam Bullas, director at Savills, said: “This is a rare opportunity to acquire the freehold of a large site with spectacular coastal views in one of the Isle of Wight’s most affluent areas. The potential for future residential development will no doubt appeal to a wide range of speculators and developers.”

Offers are being invited for the freehold of the site, which has become available for the first time in almost 60 years.
