After checking the reviews we decided to take a trip to the butterfly garden only to find it had not only closed down but they were building a new fighting arena on the site. Not very happy!! The website should be taken down!

Loads of butterflies. This place is small but not bad. When I went they had cocoons on display. Worth a look if you like butterflies
