A great visit! Bigger and better than the one at Bristol Zoo. VERY hot & humid but you can pop out to cool off and go back in as many times as you like with your receipt. Beautiful butterflies and very helpful informative staff.

Really lovely collection of butterflies. Quite small, but laid out nicely with lots to look at. Informative and enjoyable, and excellent value for money.

I wouldn't have thought so. It's quite small and hot, they also have terrapins and I'm not sure how much I'd trust my dogs not to eat a butterfly flying an inch from their nose!
