Took the kids to look at the butterflies. Lots of different types with good information regarding them. There was a new baby giraffe that we were able to see. The kids enjoyed the exhibits.

Amazing conservatory, great place to visit especially in the winter. Small admission requested, but otherwise the zoo is free. Check out Sparky the seal show during the summer months.
