This was a small but very good exhibit, allowing visitors to walk among a great variety of butterflies. It included some very good information on the life cycle and habitat of butterflies from around the world. Magnifying glasses were on loan to allow close examination of the insects along with hand held guide sheets to enable identification of each species.... More

Booked online which I *highly* recommend. £22 for a family of four to do all 3 activities is outstanding value. Played miniature golf first which was suitably challenging while still being fun with lots of obstacles! Lunch in the covered picnic area - so nice to be able to do this without having to pay! Then the maze which was... More

Spent a few hours here recently and bought the combined ticket for the butterfly zoo and the maze. Really good value for both attractions at £7. The butterfly zoo is a tropical paradise but be warned it is soooooo hot in there!!! We were soaked by the time we left due to the huminity inside but still worth it to... More

Visited with elderly family. Combined ticket with maze. Very cheap day out. Friendly helpful staff. Would take a picnic though as tearoom expensive. Good disabled access and parking.

My two youngest wanted to see the butterflies but we didn't want to make this our whole day so we popped in after visiting the view point at Symonds Yat Rock. As I didn't have to pay for my 4 year old I thought the cost was quite reasonable - especially as we would have been able to return as... More

The butterfly house was fab and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it, despite missing dinner. We drove 2 hr to visit and intended to get lunch there, choose food, stood in café queue for 15 min, when I placed the food order I was told sorry we stopped serving food 2 min ago, when I explained I had been queuing for...

This is definitely worth a visit. not the coolest place to visit in a rare British heatwave. However, this was an interesting way to spend an hour or so. Certainly worth the money. There are other attractions here, but we chose the butterfly zoo. We were provided with very useful information sheets to help us know what we were seeing,... More

A great hour or so spent looking a so many butterflys. So many different types and some lovely plants too. 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
