Win a family ticket to Stratford Upon Avon Butterfly Farm
Come rain or shine walk amongst some of the world’s most beautiful and spectacular butterflies in a unique rainforest environment of tropical blossom, splashing waterfalls and fish-filled pools. Discover the fascinating link the Butterfly Farm has to the rainforests of Belize and the ancient Maya civilisation, whose artefacts have been replicated and are on display throughout the farm.
Observe the amazing life-cycle of a butterfly in the Discovery Zone. Within the Emerging Case you may even see a butterfly hatch from its pupae. See for yourself some of the crops the Maya farmed and are still farmed today: sweetcorn, chilli, pineapple, avocado, even cacao saplings, the source of chocolate!
Minibeast Metropolis is teeming with life and home to a leafcutter ant colony, one of the largest on display in the UK. Watch the ants take leaves back to their nest along overhead ropes. Marvel at creatures in the Metropolis where stick insects, beetles and snakes, live alongside, frogs, reptiles and some of the world’s largest spiders. Open all year.
