Butterfly & Fountain World is a great day out whatever the weather. A chance to see hundreds of beautiful butterflies flying freely around in a natural environment, with the opportunity to study all stages of their life cycle. Information boards help you identify popular species and their countries of origin and the keeper is always on hand to answer questions.

The emerging cages provide the chance to see adult butterflies being born each day, as they emerge from their chrysalis.

As well as the butterflies, you can see exotic parakeets flying freely and Chinese painted quail wandering around.

Fountain World, with its gorgeous Italian and Japanese-style gardens and fabulous range of waterfalls and water features as well as the Jumping Jets, also can also see our two koi ponds, with Japanese koi carp - some more than 75cm long - and enjoy the hand-feeding and talks on these amazing fish. Pre-booked school visits are welcome and would include exclusive talks for both the butterfly world and fountain world.
