A very reasonably priced experience. The keeper Lee had a vast knowledge & kept us all entertained. No pressure to handle any of the specimens. It's a small set up which I think is being developed. We ate in the Smokehouse. The staff were very helpful & the meals tasty. I was recommended this place to take our 7 &... More

Although this experience handling millipedes, tarantulas, etc) is mainly intended as an educational establishment for school age children, we took our daughter for her 30th birthday, and found it a fascinating experience.

The Bugtopia talk was great. The keeper was very engaging and kept our 10, 8 and six year olds interested with lots of bugs and a spider to hold. Not much else to do there though. They had a couple of rabbits and a barn owl outside, a smokehouse style restaurant which seemed reasonably priced, although despite it being pretty... More

We were little group so we had chance to hold all the little but sometimes scary creatures - tarantula, scorpio and some multipedes. Kieran was great and funny guide through the insect world.

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...
