In desperate need of supervision inside the butterfly house. Signs telling visitors not to handle the butterflies were openly ignored . Not a single member of staff present to stop children scraping the butterflies of the foliage. Large numbers of the butterflies look damaged. Lack...More

Was really excited to come to butterfly world - upon arrival the two ladies at the front desk weren’t terribly welcoming but we’re okay to deal with. Price of entry was very fair as you can re-enter throughout the day. Signs clearly state not to...More

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
