Each year over 1 million visitors pass through Roundhay Park’s Tropical World, home to one of the largest collections of tropical plants in the United Kingdom. Separated from the main park area by Street Lane, this garden includes a group of greenhouses with separate themed zones representing different climates from around the world. The site also contains a butterfly house and several aquariums, and a wide range of birds and reptiles living and moving freely within their sections of the landscaped garden. Drop by on a rainy day see this exotic indoor world of plants and animals, and be sure to stop by the garden’s nocturnal house to see bats and other creatures active only at night.

    Very warm inside, which was wonderful when it's freezing outside, lots of fun and amazing plants and animals to see kids were very happy. At £18 it's really is fantastic value for money.  more »
