10 reasons why Autumn is the perfect time to visit us...

Here's 10 reasons why Autumn is a great time to visit the Tropical Butterfly House...

1. No queues

The queues you may have experienced during the Summer months have subsided. Woohoo!

2. Beautiful Autumn scenery

Lots of the leaves on the trees are now changing to glorious reds, purples, oranges and browns. We know we're biased... but it really looks stunning! Plus - you might find a conker, and that's always cool.


Our Halloween Spooktacular takes place every weekend throughout October and daily during Half Term! This makes October awesome, regardless of the weather!

4. A special treat for you...

Look out for our special autumn and winter deals online!

5. The warmth of the Butterfly House

Average temperature 26 degrees, with approximately 70% humidity. It's ALWAYS Summer in the Butterfly House! Escape the blustery showers and enjoy a tropical paradise right here in South Yorkshire...

6. Feeding the Animals

As the weather gets colder, animal appetites increase and they will look forward to seeing you even more! You can purchase food on your way in to the centre and treat our Meerkats, farm animals and monkeys to a tasty treat.

7. The Butterfly Café

Homemade cakes, hot chocolate, and freshly prepared comforting meals such as stew and roast pork sandwiches are all waiting for you in our cosy cafe.

8. Quieter Animal Encounters

Winter months are a little quieter, especially during weekdays, offering the chance for really special Animal Encounters. Our daily timetable will still be just as jam-packed as in Summer, with opportunities every day to meet Lemurs, Meerkats, snakes, owls and more - but there will be less competition to see them!

9. Indoor and Outdoor fun

We make it a priority to ensure there's lots of fun to be had, both on bright, sunny Winter days, and the rainy, horrible ones! Our indoor Craft and Activity Centre will be full of crafts and activities to entertain all ages.

10. Hassle-free Christmas shopping

Yes, we know it's a bit early - but while you're here - why not pick up an Animal Adoption for only £15, a VIP Animal Experience, a Gift Voucher, or even a cuddly animal toy from our gift shop. We've got loads of perfect Christmas gifts on offer for all budgets.
