Good place for family outing

Great place for kids (young and old!). Maybe not a full day out but certainly 3-4 hours worth of good family entertainment.

Visiting the area and looking for somewhere to entertain our 2 year old. Finding the attraction was easy enough and ample car parking. You have to keep driving through a few car parks to get near the entrance, especially on a very windy day in Jan, however it looks like it gets very busy. Entrance was via the shop, staff... More

As a local of Dinnington, the Tropical Butterfly House is a pleasant 3 mile walk for my house, subsequently me and my girlfriend tend to visit on a quarter-yearly basis; not only to help a local business thrive but to see its fascinating attractions that need no justification for warranting repeat viewings. The range of animals and activities for such... More

Really good attraction and plenty of opportunity to get up close and hands on with animals. Lots of other little things to do. Added bonus....armed forces get in for free!

There's a good range of things to see and a daily schedule of free events. VIP packages allow you in with the animals. Post code is a bit confusing. Just keep driving and it's around the corner!

All in all a lovely day out, however I feel the entrance price for my two year old was very high (not sure how a place can justify charging the same price for a 2 year old as a 15 year old). Sadly this has put me off visiting again until my son is older and is able to access... More

We went here due to having a bit of time to kill from a swimming trip with our eldest daughter and felt bad for younger two being cooped up. This was perfect, we spent a good few hours wandering around! Looks like it has something for all seasons as there is santas grotto, and outdoor splash area etc. To my... More
