Huge heated greenhouse where butterflies are free to roam. This is the only place outside London where I have seen this. Also there is a kiddies activity play area in the Preston Park grounds.

We had a fabulous few hours in Butterfly World. It felt magical as we entered the house and all around us were free flying butterflies. It was great to see all the different colours and species.
As well as the butterflies there were little finches and quails roaming free too.
The family ticket was extremely
reasonable.
Very educational place to take
children to learn all about the life circle of butterflies.
Oh and I can't forget the Meerkats and snakes in the next room.

Went on a Sunday with a 3 year old and a 9 year old and to be honest ,both them and I expected to see more.The entry price was fair for £4 however the place is too small you cannot move around , and needs a bit of tidying up.The beautiful coy carps,fauna and butterflies are so nice .Just need a bit more room and some activities.

This attraction is located within Preston Park in Stockton on Tees. The park itself is beautiful but going inside Butterfly World is an added bonus. It is about 26-28 degrees in temperature within the premises so expect a warm welcome. We were greeted with various butterflies in different color shape and sizes. Along with the insects we also feasted our eyes with tropical plants and beautiful orchids in full bloom. There is a pond teeming with fat fishes. Anotehr section with lizards, snakes, meerkat and ants. We appreciated the facts and figures written in colorful posters / boards , it added information and knowledge, helping us understand what these fascinating creatures are all about. We recomend walking calmly and gently while observing so as not to disturb the delicate balance of their living space.
