Butterfly and Fountain World
Isle of Wight
Telephone: 01983 883430
The charming Butterfly and Fountain World provides kids with the opportunity to see hundreds of butterflies flying freely in a natural environment! It's like being in a jungle! The family can study the egg-caterpillar-chrysalis-imago life cycle first hand with informative boards and living examples! There are also have cute exotic finches flying about freely too and a hoard of pretty little Chinese Painted Quail who dart about munching on the uninvited insects!
'Small World' is set in a dark fairytale setting with decorative lighting and an animated diorama of animals and other characters, including an arctic pirate scene and a clown band playing music.
Plus Jumping Jets, which shoots jets of water three and a half metres high and five metres across in a synchronised display and other 'get wet if you want to' water features!
And alongside these features they also have the amusing Fountain World, the wonderfully themed Italian and Japanese gardens, plus you can also catch expertly informed feeding talks at the beautiful Koi ponds.
