Stratford Butterfly Farm

I+

Come rain or shine discover some of the world’s most beautiful butterflies in a unique rainforest environment of tropical blossom, splashing waterfalls and fish-filled pools.
Watch in wonder as hundreds of exotic and vibrantly coloured butterflies, fly and feed all around you.

Observe the amazing life-cycle of a butterfly in the Discovery Zone. Find some of the world's largest and most camouflaged caterpillars. See giant silk moths and their cocoons. Within the Emerging Case you may even see a butterfly hatch from its pupae. 
Find out all about the Maya, an ancient civilisation that lived in the rainforest. Look out for replica artefacts and statues which are on display throughout the Butterfly Farm. See for yourself some of the crops that the Maya farmed and are still being farmed today!
 
The Minibeast Metropolis is teeming with life and is home to an amazing leafcutter ant colony, one of the largest on display in the UK. Watch the ants take leaves back to their nest along overhead ropes. Marvel at the fascinating creatures in the Metropolis where stick insects, beetles and snakes live alongside giant snails, frogs, crabs and some of the world’s largest spiders.
 
Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm is the largest and most comprehensive attraction of its type in the UK. It is fully accessible with disabled parking available onsite. Open throughout the year.
