We visited today while the Halloween theme was on. It was excellent. The kids loved seeing a learning about the bugs and meeting Wanda the Witch. I even braved holding a tarantula! I didn't expect to enjoy the time there as much as I did. It is an excellent place for kids to go to and great value for money.... More

A splendid and informative attraction, good value for money and the travel. My Daughter enjoyed getting up close and friendly with all sorts of critters. Shame the garden centre though very disappointing.

I am not a big fan of creepy crawlies and try to keep as far away as possible but my daughter is unfazed by them and wanted to go and see the tarantulas especially. The keeper who hosted the meet and greet (exceptional value) was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and everyone, including me got to handle stick insects, millipedes, scorpions and... More

Just visited with the hubby and two kids (aged 8 and 10). Every one of us really enjoyed Bugtopia. There is not a ton to do other than the bug encounter, but there is a cafe, chickens and rabbits, also a trampoline to play on. You can buy some grain at reception to feed the chickens. Bugtopia a great value... More

We had such a great visit. Lee has a wonderful way of talking about the animals to children, he was patient and so knowledgable, so adults can learn too! He is so passionate about his animals and how we treat them and the planet. You get the opportunity to handle the animals, which is a great experience. The highlight was... More

What a great way to spend a Sunday morning with the family. Lee, 'The Bugman' was so good with getting information across to the kids and adults. The man should be on the telly! No one got bored and the length of the talk was just right. Loads of bugs to hold if you want, and they weren't pushed onto... More

I took my children aged 7 & 10. We really enjoyed our time at Bugtopia. We were able to hold lots of the bugs. Staff were really friendly and informative. Would definitely recommend & we will be returning in the future.

A group of 13 of us went between the ages of 6 and 21 and every person left with a huge smile. The keeper (Lee I believe?) was passionate and excited the whole way through and ensured no pressure was put on anyone to hold the bugs. We are looking forward to visiting again

An open and welcoming start to an event that could be a bit scarey for little ones but the 2 staff were very kind and helpful. The "show", that the children loved was informative and we'll done with time to hold the animals and presented by a knowledgeable and obviously enthusiastic keeper. Well worth a visit. We're lucky to have... More
