Come rain or shine enjoy the unique pleasure of discovering hundreds of the world’s most beautiful butterflies flying in an exotic environment of tropical blossom with splashing waterfalls and fish filled pools. Situated in the historic market town of Stratford-upon-Avon.
Enjoy the unique pleasure of watching hundreds of the world’s most spectacular and colourful butterflies flying all around. You can see them feeding and flying in a wonderful tropical environment.
First opened to the public in 1985, Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm is a unique rainforest environment set within a series of greenhouses. It is landscaped with tropical blossom, fish-filled pools, splashing waterfalls and themed to the ancient Maya civilisation with replicated Maya artefacts throughout.
You can expect to see hundreds of butterflies and many different species from around the world within the Rainforest Flight Area. Visitor Guides and ID sheets are available from reception.
It’s not just butterflies! Within the Flight Area there are a couple of free roaming green iguanas called Prudence and Bennie, plus a variety of seed eating birds, as well as all sorts of interesting creatures waiting to be discovered in Minibeast Metropolis!
Behind the scenes an industrious team works tirelessly not only to bring pupae to Stratford Butterfly Farm but also to export and supply butterfly houses across the globe! To be able to do this we import from a variety of international butterfly farms, providing a sustainable income for the local community and conservation projects.
