Think our 8yo enjoyed it the most finding all the different types and the caterpillars while our 1yo had more fun with the magnifying glass. Worth buying ticket day before online as reduced rate for all the activities is much... More

Spent a nice (and very warm) hour looking around and being landed on by some beautiful butterfly's. You get the opportunity to see, feel and touch lots of different and colourful species. Well worth a visit.

Here at the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo their trained staff are there to help you understand the world of the butterfly and they do it with relative ease. But this attraction has many elements... More

A fantastic day out for all the family. Beautiful butterflies, some even landing on you. The kids were fascinated! You could spend hours in there. There is a nice little coffee shop on site. There is also a crazy golf area, which the kids loved. And a beautiful hedge maze, with a viewing platform to look down on when you... More

This was a joy to visit with friendly staff and a very well run "zoo".The butterflies were very well looked after and there was plenty of information. It was good to have re-entry during the day. The tea-shop on site is good too.

Visited here on a term time weekday and at times we were the only people in there. It's a great place! Beautiful lively butterflies, great access and on site picnic area. Great value for money too.

Dropped in here for a midweek visit having lived in the area for years but never having visited (as my wife does not like feathers or wings) and it was well worth a visit. Very warm in there but lots of things to see and do and we wished we had been before!

What a lovely collection of wonderful butterflies. We took the option of buying the group ticket for the maze and mini golf and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. We were fortunate to have some of the butterflies land on us too!
