We had a lovely time wandering around with the beautiful butterflies 🦋 the children were so delighted spotting all the different types of butterflies & the cocoons as well as the little birds. The staff were friendly & welcoming

This is a very small place, but they've packed a lot into it. The butterflies are breathtakingly beautiful, but there are also koi carp, meerkats, an ant farm with tunnels so that you can see the workers travelling along. There are quite a few reptiles...More
