We went as a party of 7 adults and 2 children. We should have booked but got lucky and were able to all go to the bug show and tell in one party. Kids and adults all thoroughly enjoyed the interactive show. New addition of the American style smoke house restaurant gave us the opportunity to further enjoy our visit... More

I came here for the bat night event with my other half, where we had the opportunity to feed fruit bats and see them at night time in full flight! We also got to see several other of the nocturnal creatures there, and got to hold snakes spiders and more too. Would like to visit again in the day time... More

One hour of experience, teaching, animal handling and fun - three children aged 5, 9, 11 they all loved it (i really did too). They learnt so much and the speaker was fantastic - kept them engaged the whole time, got them to repeat back what he'd told them he was fantastic! Definitely a brilliant outing. Take a snack or...

The variety of animals at Bugtopia is astounding! They have snakes, spiders, bugs and all sorts, but the facilities are lacking.

We went here with our toddler last year. A brilliant place if you want to get up close & personal with a wide range of creepy crawlies. The presenter was rewally informative and genuinely seemed to care and be interested in the exhibits. My fault for not researching properly but I wasn't so keen on being so close but enjoyed...

Looking to get kids out of house for a few hours after Christmas and decided to give Bugtopia a go. Website was a little confusing so went with low expectations. We were the only people on our trip so had Lee all to ourself for nearly an hour. All bugs taken and out and kids got round to touching them.... More

I've been here 3 times with my daughter in the last 2 years. She is usually very shy however the staff made her feel comfortable enough to hold a tarantula! Its great hands on discovery. Different every time. I love it!

We visited today while the Halloween theme was on. It was excellent. The kids loved seeing a learning about the bugs and meeting Wanda the Witch. I even braved holding a tarantula! I didn't expect to enjoy the time there as much as I did. It is an excellent place for kids to go to and great value for money.... More

A splendid and informative attraction, good value for money and the travel. My Daughter enjoyed getting up close and friendly with all sorts of critters. Shame the garden centre though very disappointing.
