We've been to several butterfly farms over the years but never have we seen so many in one place! Some stunning colours as well as a huge leaf cutter ant colony which was fascinating to watch. Reasonable entrance price and not too busy. Only downside was the parking which was very busy and pretty expensive but close by. Well worth... More

Not the biggest or the best butterfly place we have been to, but it is nice. It's weakest point in my opinion is the insect house where the enclosures look rather tired and a bit small for some of the animals. Of course, the butterflies are wonderful. Plenty of them and a good range of species. The shop is fairly... More

We got here at 10.00 o'clock on a Saturday morning and whilst busy well organised and helpful staff. Inside it's a hot house so wear something comfortable. Inside you are greeted with an array of beautiful butterflies flying around and they give you a leaflet showing how many different varieties their are. Lovely tropical surroundings and different plants, they have... More

I had a wonderful afternoon at the park, the butterflies were amazing. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I'm so pleased I spoke to Harriet, she was a superb Butterfly educator, I learnt so much from her in a short while. Thanks for a splendid afternoon, I will be back.

This is such a good place to visit! We visited to take some photos for a project we are doing and to spend the day with butterflies! They are gorgeous creatures, so many different colours, sizes and shapes! Really good value, a place to hang your coats before you go in, a place to eat lunch if you have a... More

We weren't planning to visit the Butterfly Farm, but had some time to spare so gave it a go. So so glad we did! Amazing space, you feel really close to the nature. Some of the best bits are actually unadvertised; the cutter ant room is amazing!
