Attraction Information

If you’re craving a taste of the tropical then go to Earnley Butterflies, Birds and Beasts.

Wander among tropical butterflies and exotic birds and imagine that you’re on your own paradise island. You may even be able to practice your David Attenborough impression if one lands on you along the way! Carry on your tactile, tropical wildlife adventure by getting close to parrots, lovebirds, parakeets and others. You can also meet eagles, owls and hawks!

Time to fly off to the maze of 17 themed gardens now where you can Swoop along searching for pictures of animals and clues before re-living the final moments of the HMS Hazardous, which was shipwrecked and sunk in 1706, via various artefacts taken from her watery grave.

Travel to somewhere tropical for a spot of wildlife, history and fun!

Really not worth the money at all!!! 1 out of 5 stars

Took my son here and went with some friends and there kids,there was a half eaten dead bird in the bird in closure,there was no water in a lot of the in closures for the animals! A few of the in closures are too small for the type of animal in them , the owels have nothing in there in closure they can sleep or hide all they have is a branch!,it also does not state on the website that they have no play park anymore!when we tried to speak to the woman behind the till about it all and we also stated that we wasnt happy about the keep of the animals she argued back and spoke to us like we was nothing!and we also spoke to the manager who was exactly the same !! She said to the lady to give us £10 bk but that’s not the point as I really feel for the animals!! The butterflies are lovely there tho just a shame about the rest


Not worth the money 2 out of 5 stars

I do not recommend it. Primarily because it seemed like the animals were not looked after. The donkeys were dirty, agitated and had no water on a very hot day. The parrots had been ripping their own feathers out. Themed garden was tacky and cheap. And the Summer prices are just ridiculous. Good points: Butterfly room was nice. Reptile room was also fine. My daughter enjoyed feeding the guinea pigs.
