All reviews butterfly house rock garden beautiful butterflies butterfly exhibition gardens are lovely pleasant afternoon couple of hours town centre full bloom entry fee few hours lovely place to visit worth a visit lovely walk wander around sunny day plants
We usually don´t like gardens but this one is really amazing and beautiful. Lots of beautiful flowers and plants. The butterfly exhibit was really good. The weather wasn´t the best so I think we would really enjoy it on good day.
Visited with a family member who has dementia- the butterflies were just the best thing to entertain and enchant. Lots of interest in the other glass houses too.
Friendly helpful staff for the butterflies and cafe. Tea and brownies recommended. No frills but everything is...More

We walked around the gardens and glasshouses which were enjoyable even as people who are not that into plants. I think for an avid gardener...More
A visit of two halves, a long wander around the well laid out gardens with lots of rare plants ( and even a Gruffalo!) . Lots of different pathways so make sure you don't miss anything. Then onto several different glasshouses with everything from cacti...More
We visited the gardens on Sunday and enjoyed walking around in the sunshine. The lady in the kiosk advised us of the many picnic spots, benches and tables which are dotted around the gardens. However most of them were spattered with bird poo. Given that...More
My partner and I were staying at Lathones and spent a few hours here.
The butterflies were definitely my highlight, so many different varieties and some were massive!
The garden was beautiful and is large with walks so you could spend all day in the...More

Hi Rachel. Yes, there is! The First Friday of each month is free for Botanic Garden entry. Any paid for exhibits are still charged for, so currently entry to the Tropical Butterfly House would still be £2.95 each.
