Butterfly World

Butterfly World

Phase II of this spectacular project, described as ââ'€š¬Ã…"London's own Eden Projectââ'€š¬Ã‚, is open this season as a taster for the completion of the massive rainforest biome in Summer/Autumn 2011. This year the focus is on education with some new features to include a dedicated teaching area, the Insect Study Centre, a children's play zone and a ââ'€š¬Ã‹Å“Chrysalis Lake', so that we can watch our water-based mini beast friends. This is as well as the 27 acres of wildflower meadows, 19 ââ'€š¬Ã‹Å“bonkers' individual gardens, tropical butterfly house with 500 butterflies, butterfly breeding house and not forgetting the Very Hungry Caterpillar lunchboxes. It is a fun and educational day out for all ages and provides an imaginative and hands-on opportunity for children to learn about how helping butterflies and insects survive can be interesting and why it's so important. Situated just off the M25 and M1 near St Albans, there is a picnic area, café, plant boutique and gift shop. Children's parties are welcomed in the Very Hungry Caterpillar Solardome with special rates and either a beautiful butterfly or Very Hungry Caterpillar cake for free. Supported by the patronage of Sir David Attenborough, Professor David Bellamy, Alan Titchmarsh, Emilia Fox and others, the project is set to become the biggest butterfly experience in the world ââ'€š¬Ã¢'‚¬Å“ and it's right on your doorstep.
