You really need to have the whole day at Symonds Yat and see other things to make this worth visiting, as it's quite small. Having said that it was well organised, friendly and everyone enjoyed it. The butterflies were well looked after and each of us was landed on at some point, you can go back in more than once... More

Four of us visited here. It's with a crazy golf and a maze. Really good overall experience and some amazing butterflies here. You walk on paths through the trees and there's butterflies everywhere. Great for children as amazing to be in amongst them

Many years I have treasured memories of this place. From being in Junior school to comp visiting this place. I was my nieces age when I first visited and now I'm her tour guide! Today we walked around and along the embankment and over to the butterfly farm through a small path passing a beautiful church and maze. This place... More

Staying down the road in Ross-on-Wye for a few days, Symonds Yat was recommended by our daughter, but she knew nothing of the butterfly zoo, I'm pleased we ventured in, a Sunday in mid september was ideal and pretty quiet.

Compact charming attraction with a bargain price. We found the staff there very helpful and the magnifier and identification sheets were a welcome addition. A nice sized butterfly zoo with a great assortment of beautiful butterflies who flutter around you and even land on you. The ticket is valid all day so you can come and go as you please.... More
