“Ok”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

My kids were desperate to visit here and it was nice but not overly impressed. Not very big and found the woman on the desk/till quite rude with very little vocabulary. So much so we didn't know where we were ment to go after paying and at no point did she volunteer that info! We actually walked out without seeing the meer cats etc as wasn't really signed very well. We had to go back in to ask where to go! Happy to say I have been but wouldn't return to this part but park and museum is great

“Don't turn your back”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Didn't Intend to go to butterfly world but as I was wondering around Preston park I came across this wonderful wildlife centre full of beautiful 'Bflys', turned my back for 1 second and already a big Narley creature had landed on my shoulder. Also recommend not to put your hand in the fish pond as the big fish do bite and may drag you under

“Children Just Love it”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Great day out for adults and children alike. The butterflies flying around the large greenhouse is lovely to see and the Meerkat Enclosure was very entertaining. The children will enjoy the adventure ground at Preston Park.
