Butterfly World

If you haven’t been to Butterfly World, near St. Albans, in awhile you may be surprised at some of the improvements.  When it first opened it was a bit of a disaster; very overpriced, including the café and it was pretty much a building site.

It was nice to see all the improvements yesterday, they’ve obviously listened.  The gardens are in full bloom and are absolutely stunning.  Madame and her pals had a whale of a time climbing on, over and through all of the sculptures.  If you go, do seek out the playground, it’s a bit tucked away behind the café.  My photos don’t do it justice.

To save a few pennies you could take a picnic as there is a dedicated picnic area.  I wasn’t organised enough so purchased lunch for us and it wasn’t too expensive (£7).

Do bear in mind though that it is still a work in progress and the large dome isn’t finished yet.

I’d love to know what you think.

If you’re struggling for ideas of what to do with your kids this summer these posts may also be of interest.
