“A wonderful display”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I have been to Butterfuly World numerous times but enjoyed it the most this time. I have never seen such a wide assortment of butterflys there. Still a great place to visit. Your can get really close to the meercats and they seem totally at ease with people. Lots of lizards, spiders and snakes to look at too. Costs £13 for a family ticket; it's worth every penny!

“Stunning butterflies”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

A small building and a fantastic place to take people of all ages when they are visiting. The most amazing butterflies that I have never seen in the wild. The meercats are a treat too.

Visited with a school group and the children loved the butterflies just flying freely and landing around them. A new experience.

“A little Jewel.”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Went there yesterday, a great way of spending an hour, my daughter loved it tropical butterfly's flying overhead, meerkats and fish. Only £3.75 for an adult. We'll be back.

“Great place for the kids”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Wander through the tropical setting, have huge butterflies land on you, see tiny birds in amongst the foliage and best of all, meerkats! What's not to like?!
