Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm was opened in 1985.  It is housed in a large greenhouse, landscaped with waterfalls, ponds and a wide variety of tropical plants.  Hundreds of exotic butterflies from all over the world fly within this area.  Visitors can walk throughout and observe behaviour and life-cycles at first hand. Many of the species on display are bred in the Farm.

See their amazing lifecycles in the Caterpillar Room. Observe the fascinating and strange in Insect City, where Stick Insects, Beetles, Leaf-cutting ants and many more remarkable creatures are to be found. For the bolder, get close to the deadly and dangerous in perfect safety in Arachnoland; home of the worlds largest spider, a scorpion colony and other spinners of webs and dealers of death. Afterwards take a look at the many gifts available in the Papillon Gift shop

The whole concept of the exhibition is to show live insects behaving as naturally as possible, rather than cases of dead specimens.  Stratford Butterfly Farm is the largest and most comprehensive attraction of its type in Europe.
