Tropical World is a cheap family day out , since our last visit there has been some improvements to some parts but there are sections of it that are in need of attention. We were disappointed by the lack of butterflies it was unbearably hot at 43 C and we only saw 6 butterflies , I have memories of there being a lot more in the past. There is a good selection of things to look at from snakes to insects , birds , bats etc. However some of the tanks were too dirty to be able to see what was in them this was particularly bad for the poor fish. Other areas whilst they weren't terribly dirty were not to a high standard and a number of people mentioned the smell , so reality check its £3.40 for an adult ticket so I'm sure people would think you get what you pay for , I am more bothered about the animals , if a place keeps animals they should be kept clean it just seems a shame for what could be an excellent day out , I would pay more to get in if that's what is needed to improve hygiene as I'm sure a lot of people would.
