Beautiful butterfly's with many varieties, staff very helpful. Good access for wheelchairs. Dress in summer gear as hot and humid inside. Good value for money.

Lovely way to spend a morning with children. Children are given a magnifying glass and laminated sheets identifying the different butterflies to be found. Prices are reasonable. There is a picnic area outside and an adjacent indoor picnic area in case of rain. There is crazy golf and a maze nearby which my children were a little bit young for... More

This little gem is amazingly educational and very good value for money. It has a nice souvenir shop and friendly helpful staff. Free parking at the door and easy access for all.

We stopped off here to break up our journey from Staffordshire to South Wales. We had been several years ago on a dreary winter afternoon for the same purpose but our youngest didn't remember it so we decided to go again in better weather! I'm so glad we did! It was full of beautiful butterflies - so many more than... More

The Butterfly Zoo is unfortunately poorly signed and doesn't look appealing at all when you pull up. I wondered if I was even in the right place however once inside you are met with helpful, knowledgable staff and wonderful butterflies. I have never seen so many inside the one house before. Just perfect. My children loved seeing them up close,... More

The butterfly zoo is situated on a shared site with other attractions including a hedge maze and mini golf. It's a tropical environment so you get hot very quickly and hence would only spend a half hour or so in there. The butterflies are flying freely and there are a number of brightly coloured varieties. Some of the butterflies settle... More

Lots of lovely butterflies. The children loved having the magnifying glasses and spotter sheets. Not particularly big. Very hot obviously. Nice gift shop and nice. Take a picnic tearoom awful and do the crazy golf while you are there (bargain price)
