Advantages Beautiful place to visit
Disadvantages A bit expensive
The Butterfly Farm in Stratford upon Avon is a most spectacular place to visit.
You enter the mains doors into the gift shop and pay at the counter before you enter the main butterfly farm. Prices are as follows
Though it is cheaper for each person if the group is larger then 10.Opening times are
Once you go through the plastic flaps you enter into what looks like a warm rainforest with tropical plants blooming and all sorts of different beautiful butterflies flying round.
There is a big pond in the middle which you can cross over by a number a bridges, and on one side the is a lovely waterfall that falls down into the pond which is so relaxing to watch and in the water you can find all sots of fish including Koi Carp of all sizes.
Then once you leave the caterpillar room you enter back into the rainforest to cross another bridge to find yourself at the feeding table were they leave all sorts of different fruit out so you can see the butterflies feeding including the huge Owl Butterflies. If you are lucky enough you might have a few land on you.
There are benches all around so you can just sit a watch.
Then its on to the scary bit, Spiders, I much as I have a real fear of spiders I do like to watch them and as they are all safely tucked up behind glass tanks I do feel completely safe.
Here you can find the most dangerous Black Widow which really is quiet small or the huge hairy Tarantula, that gives me shivers watching them, still I can't walk away. They are larger then 200mm in size, that's big. There are also large glow in the dark scorpions, that's a site to see.
Overall a really enjoyable day out for all the family, I have taken my children there on a number of occasions and the absolutely love it, mind they were a bit frightened the first time a took them because the butterflies are absolutely everywhere and some are on the large size, but now it doesn't bother them at all.
