It isn't the biggest of attractions yet is well laid out fun dinosaurs, regular keepers talking about the different exhibits. Enjoyed the butterfly area very much. Fun for all ages.

This was our second visit, the first one was many years ago when it first opened. I was amazed at the transformation; the butterfly house was still enchanting and full of surprises, but the additional displays of meercats, birds of prey and reptiles were really impressive. One handler, Lucy Wright went out of her way to help us understand the... More

We visited with an 8 year old and a 10 year old and we all had a great time. In total we spent about 3 hours here. It might have been longer if the weather had been better - we got cold sitting waiting for the kids in the playground! The place is well maintained and the tropical house has... More

Good cafe, friendly staff. We went just after Christmas so all the decorations were up inside and out. Lots of birds, reptiles and insects and the tropical house is the highlight; lovely and warm on a winter's day and the butterflies landing on you is magical

I paid for myself and the Mrs, our daughter and son in law, and our granddaughter to have a day out here and really enjoyed it, so I've given it full marks, the only down side to this review is that I got the tickets half price, I think if I'd payed the full price I may have marked it... More

Though appearing small when you enter, the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife & Falconry Centre has an impressive array of animals from guinea pigs and goats through to tenrecs and agoutis, the latter of which walk around among you in a small themed area. The park itself is looked after a small by a but very friendly and knowledgeable team who... More

Lots to do even on a cold day, staff are great and the animal talks are very informative. There are seasonal themes and tractor trailer rides on some days. This place has been extended over the years and now has a large outdoor play area. I have visited with children aged 2-14 and they have all enjoyed it.
