  • Something to go see for a couple of hours, My wife can spend hours looking at Butterflies. They are enclosed in quite a big enclosure, so you get too see lots of them. In the grounds is a large...  more »
  • We first missed the entrance! There is a bamboo hedge on a car park and you have to go through the hedge (but cars blocked our view so we went passed ^^) It had been rainning earlier so the garden...  more »

  • Very good, beautiful butterflies, and garden well cared for. Expensive, but money appeared to be spent on the butterflies so worth the cost.
  • Lovely park
  • Good place but the entry fee is too high and the park is not well maintained.
  • Amazing place , great restaurant and they do great parties!
  • Beautiful butterflies of all shapes, sizes and colours fluttering past all the time during the visit. You can see butterflies at all stages of the life cycle, fascinating to watch and absolutely mesmerising to see enormous butterflies suddenly land in easy reach in front of you, or if you are lucky, on you. Also vividly coloured little tree frogs, fish and praying mantis too. The praying mantis are separately contained and are not moving around freely in the main large butterfly enclosure that you walk through. Small gift shop if you like buying pretty butterfly themed gifts such as brooches, scarves and stationery. Lots of children's gifts to teach them about nature and insects. Separate garden area that you can walk around or sit in, benches to sit on and areas for children to run around, ideal for hide and seek. Staff are friendly and very welcoming, lots of interesting educational leaflets about nature, you could easily spend half a day here particularly if you like taking butterfly photos or just enjoy watching them. Well worth a visit.
