Great time, took our 2 year old granddaughter, she thought it was magical as it was, so much to see spart from the butterflies, there's insects, spiders and the odd reptile, highly recommended.

Very reasonable entrance ticket , go out and return all day , very warm inside . its a bit like a small forest of flowers with butterflies all around , magical . The four meerkats are worth the visit alone .

We visited Butterfly World with our three year old granddaughter, she and we were entranced, exotic butterflies in a colourful tropic environment, lovely experience. Quite humid so consider leaving off your coat! Staff very friendly and helpful.

Hi, Under 5’s are free at Buttefly World. Please note that we are separate to the museum as we are a privately owned family business and not part of the council. Thanks Michelle
