Stratford Butterfly Farm – Giant Lizards, Waterfalls & Tropical Adventures
Recently refurbished, this attraction has hugely benefited from a proper renovation.
So, hang your coat up (it gets really warm inside) and embark on a tropical adventure with us.
As you set about following the paths here, you’ll find so much to look at.
If you’re one of the lucky chosen ones, a butterfly may even take a liking to you and use your EAR (or other body part) as a perch to land on.
Selections of delicious fruit are dotted about that you will undoubtedly find these elegant insects feasting on (to be honest I wanted to join them but couldn’t…may have raised an eyebrow or two).
A cascading waterfall, takes up centre stage, spilling into a large pool filled with Coi.
Amazing fish that you could blissfully gaze at for hours.
Tip# You can purchase handfuls of fish food for 20p and let the kids feed them.
Keep an eye out above you as you may catch a glimpse of a GIGANTIC lizard hiding somewhere (pssst…look above the arch!).
There are various areas located here, not just containing winged lovelies (trying not to say butterflies to many times).
We entered a room through flappy lengths of plastic that keep the flutterbys (my daughter used to call them by this name) from escaping and found long lengths of rope draped from a tank, to the other side of the room.
I don’t believe these were placed for decorative purposes, no, to my surprise a stream of ants carrying large off cuts of leaves scale the ropes carrying them off for their Queen (I’m guessing?).
All in all, a great day out and Stratford butterfly farm, congratulations!
Not only have you entertained us but also, you have made it on to our day out map AND into the history books.
You are one of our 80 attractions visited to try and complete the challenge I set myself “Around the UK in 80 days out!”
