    Get some fresh air and make the most of the holidays – out outdoor playparks are open whatever the weather! Families can pick up a 'Going on a Bug Hunt' trail and look out for our friendly minibeasts around the park. See who is checking in at the Bug Hotel and Wildlife Pond and find out why these bugtastic creatures are so very important to us all! They might be furry or they might fly...find them all to claim a sweet treat reward!

    Our fun bug hunt trail highlights the invaluable conservation work we are involved in a little closer to home! Did you know … the Tropical Butterfly House owns 46.5 acres of land purely to conserve British wildlife and a percentage of the admission price you pay to visit the park goes into the management and upkeep of this land and makes purchasing wildflower seeds and birdboxes possible.
