  • The place is small. We literally walked round in 30 minutes. So for the price and also to then pay parking as it is part of Rutland Water was a bit much. However, the children did seem to enjoy the bu...  more »
  • This place is not big. It's a good thing you can come and go as you please. It takes you about 30-40 minutes to walk round. However the animals are lovely to see. My 4 year old loved it. It is clearly...  more »
  • Small place, does what is says "on the tin". Quite pricey for the size but you can come and go throughout the day. Time to pop out for a picnic near the water and kids play in play area which is close...  more »

  • Lovely little bug zoo. Such a pity it isn't a bigger place. We didn't spend long here (as it's so small) it's not really a place where you can go back to things either. Friendly and helpful staff
  • Cheap and cheerful, kids love it. On a good day bring a picnic and make the most of the country park. You can go in and out of bugtopia as much as you like throughout the day
  • Good selection of animals. There's an open section you can walk through with turtles lizards and birds moving about. Also a creepy spider cave.
  • A small reptile and insect zoo, lots of work being done at the moment so some areas were empty. Still a lovely day out, the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable with several very interesting talks on during the day. Located at Rutland water beach and very close to the park, great location. Our complaint is that it's badly sign posted and not clear that you go into Rutland water to access it.
  • Awesome place. Really good to see unusual bugs and a lovely setting next to the lake. Well run and good value.
