Studley Grange Butterfly World
The butterfly farm is the jewel in the crown of a complex that includes art and handicraft units, ceramic and stained glass workshops, painting and photographic studios, together with a garden centre that is one of the most up-to-date and comprehensive in its range in the country.
At Butterfly World, one of the largest in Britain, visitors can see up to 30 species of butterfly - with hundreds flying around at any one time - in the 600 square metre hot house. Over 200 varieties of tropical plant add colour and exotica to the atmosphere in the attractively laid out centre, with its little streams and rustic bridges, waterfalls and fishponds.
You may be lucky enough to see a butterfly emerging from its pupae. Enter the mini-beast room where you will come face to face with a tarantula, scorpion and many other exotic insects. Visitors can also feed our very hungry koi carp.
There is a NEW attraction - Waterbubblz, and also a crazy golf course during the school holidays for our visitors this year, Our baby meerkats are now growing nicely and are out playing with there brothers and sisters. Within the Butterfly House we now have a number of Atlas Moths one of the largest moths in the world with a wing span of up to 6". We have also had an exceptional crop of caterpillars which will turn into a very large number of butterflies during the summer.
