Best attraction in the area. Worth the money

A fantastic experience in a very beautiful tropical setting. We have visited here several times over the years and it looks better than ever! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and know about every aspect of the butterflies and plants. If you are a tropical plant enthusiast, it is well worth talking to the staff in the glasshouse. The sun was shining through the glasshouse and the butterflies were dancing in their hundreds. We saw butterflies hatching from their pupae and lots of caterpillars on the plants. We also saw an iguana and some tropical pigeons. There were some small partridges on the ground under the foliage. It was not too crowded on Saturday morning and as Covid safe as anywhere we had been. There is a one way system. Remember to wear very cool clothing or layer up and take the layers off before you go in. The toilets were very clean and modern. The gift shop has nice things and there is a cold drinks machine. Outside, the gardens were beautifully planted and a Halloween theme has been set up with lots of pumpkins and autumn leaves.

Absolutely amazing place.
Oct 2021
Visited on 7th october. 10 .30 am . Friendly helpful staff.
We were blown away by our visit. Stunning displays of the most beautiful butterflys free flying around us . Several just landing on us as we walked around. I did not expect to see so many varieties , in these quantities .
The layout is excellent, no steps for elderly / disabled people. The water feature & pond with the fattest carp I've ever seen .! It's stunning ., watching such a variety of tropical butterflys free flying around us whilst staning on the bridge over the stream. The insect displays are really interesting , & watching the leaf cutter ants truly fascinating .. The toilets were the cleanest I've ever used in a public place.
Even videos playing on the wall as you had a wee ! All in all a wonderful , informative , very enjoyable experience. We'll most definately return next year , hopefully with grandchildren too .
Well done to all who work there, all very pleasant , genuine staff, well run & well maintained.

During our weeklong stay in Stratford-Upon-Avon, this was the one place I really wanted to go. We went in at 10.30 and spent way longer there than we thought we would. So amny beautiful butterflies to watch, mark off in the booklet.
The butterflies are stunning and love to land on you! Great value and I would definitely go back

Fascinating. Absolutely beautiful butterflies everywhere!! We also loved the iguanas which were just wandering around. We were 4 adults but kiddies would have loved it too. A really different attraction for Stratford. All inside to good for rainy weather.

Fantastic place to visit for all ages, we absolutely loved it here! The butterflies are just so beautiful and there are other insects and creatures to see aswell.
It did get quite busy on our visit but we made sure we held back and took our time to soak it all in and take lots of photos. Very hot inside obviously but thats too be expected especially in summer. A must see place to go when you're in stratford, i will definitely visit again.
