An interesting experience having exotic butterflies floating around and on you. A warm welcome literally when you enter into the extremely humid world of the butterfly. A great time and very good value for money. Your ticket is a multiple visit one. Recommended.

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

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
