    The Flight Area

    The landscaped tropical greenhouse is the largest tropical butterfly display in the UK! Throughout the year there are over 250 different species of tropical butterfly from 20 different countries. There are 1,500 free flying individual butterflies (sometimes it’s a few more, sometimes a few less).

    In the Discovery Zone find out about the plants grown at the butterfly farm and see some of the world’s largest and most camouflaged caterpillars on show with cocoons, giant silk moths and shining pupae hanging on the plants. See the amazing life cycle of a butterfly within the Emerging Case where you will find butterflies hatching from their chrysalis.

    Nipped into @thersc today. This is so impressive… inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’ 🎭 

If you want to see it for yourself, enter the building through the side entrance on the right across from The Arden, it’s upstairs.
