For the same money, there are other local attractions that are better. There is not a massive amount to see here really. The tropical house is small. The butterflies are cool and the water features well executed. Other than that, there were a number of things that did not sit comfortably in terms of the apparent welfare of creatures there....

Full of animals to see and things to do, very enjoyable. The one thing that we were unsure of was the Dinosaur Trail, it seemed a bit out of place and the noisy electronic roars surely must be distressing for the animals?

I went to Butterfly house yesterday. It is certainly worth the trip for young and old. They did many shows with the parrots and eagles as well as owls. As you walk round most of it is in the open but you can always get some form of shelter if it does rain. I found the prices very reasonable and... More

Went as a family. It's a busy little place and there's plenty for young children to look at. I would say teenagers would get bored. Lots of little shows / presentations and kids and adults alike loved it. The butterfly house itself was full of flying butterflies and they were a joy to watch....and if you've never felt the wind...

Lots to do for kids. Plenty of animals to see, you can buy food for them on entry. The lemurs were popular as they were quite friendly. The butterfly house was amazing with butterfly's flying freely around you and even landing on you. Also birds and reptiles wandering about. Also a colony of leaf cutting ants which you can get...

After deliberating whether to brave the rain for a while we decided to give it a go and what a good move that was. My niece loved the shows especially the falconry display. The tropical house is very pretty and there's so much to see. To top it off the cafe was a real treat. The meals were varied and... More
