Great place to while away an hour or so wandering round the paths looking at the butterflies flying around you and sometimes landing on you if you’re lucky. Cafe is decently priced and offers a decent selection of food for its size. Downside is that...More

A lovely place to visit and would highly recommend. It was informative and enjoyable. It was great to see they have also rescued a few animals who live in the butterfly house.

Hi Wendy, there is a water feature there with a few small waterfalls, and a pond which is full of fish. But this is all indoors, so they are limited as to what they can provide. Well worth a visit though, I loved it. Enjoy... More
