About The Magic of Life Butterfly House

There are not only hundreds and hundreds of exotic butterflies of all sizes flying freely around the facility, but also unusual insects too and giant caterpillars, plus really rare and exciting plant life at The Magic of Life Butterfly House! It's a wonderfully immersive and relaxing environment that most kids will adore. FYI the best strategies to encourage them to land on you are wearing bright clothes and standing very still!

Depending on the age and attention span of the kids you can wander freely and enjoy spotting the beautiful insects as you go or you can make full use of the informative boards and track down literally every stage of a butterfly's life from pupae to peacock wannabe! It's a fantastic educational resource as well as being thoroughly fascinating throughout, ideal for all ages!

And wonderfully because of the maintained environment there are just as many butterflies around to watch during the spring and autumn as there are during the summer. Hooray! What a nice way to brighten up an off season day.

And if you fancy extending your adventure a little further why not take a map along and explore around the Rheidol Valley, where you meadow and woodland walks and a few waterfalls! Brilliant territory for a family ramble, though if you think the real world wildlife will be a patch on the collection indoors, you've got another think coming!
