Lots to do & see at the Butterfly house! One of the most interactive wildlife parks we have visited and we spent most of our day there! Had a nice meal in the cafe as well! Not bad value for money for a tourist attraction!

Enjoyed our visit to the centre today, young granddaughters loved the variety of animals and is a easy place to walk around. Especially loved the lemurs and meerkats.

Went with my wife and daughter today and found it to be an excellent place. Pleasant surroundings, modern facilities and helpful staff. The parrot show was entertaining, the lemur encounter and the otter experience were all good and informative. The butterflies are beautiful and might even land on you. During the school holidays this is a good place to consider... More

I always liked The Tropical Butterfly Centre and have taken Primary children when teaching. Now We have a two year old Granddaughter, she was visiting from Aus with her parents and we were left in charge for a day. What a great day out we had and from the moment we arrived she loved everything. She explored the separate playground... More

Just the best place ever for children with so much to see and do, and can also be thoroughly enjoyed by adults. It is also wheelchair friendly (so push chairs are fine) . Once you have paid there is very little need for any more money (apart from food and the shop!) All in all a great place to visit.

I went to this attraction today with my two grandsons aged 8 &10. I was hoping to photograph some butterflies as well as keeping them amused elsewhere in the park. Having visited Butterfly World in Florida, this selection was a disappointment. Very small unit, and as the road signs all say Butterfly farm I felt slightly ripped off. In fairness... More

A wonderful day out. There is so much to do and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. There are so many different animals to see, from farmyard animals to rare species of bird, lemurs, and even a skunk! I would thoroughly recommend this attraction. It is pricey but worth it.

There are lots of animals here - we came when the fairies were here and the staff had really thought this out and captured the fairy magic for the children. The Butterfly house is lovely (and nice and warm) and the reptiles are good. The staff are knowledgeable and chatty without intruding. It is a bit expensive so try and... More

I came to the Tropical Butterfly House in the pursuit of taking photographs for an exhibition. If you have a decent digital camera, I would definitely bring it with you as some of the butterflies are absolutely beautiful. I would recommend the Tropical Butterfly House to anyone who is interested in nature. Particularly families. I think that it would make... More
