Welcome to Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm

Come rain or shine enjoy the unique pleasure of discovering hundreds of the world's most spectacular and beautiful butterflies flying in an exotic environment of tropical blossom with splashing waterfalls and fish-filled pools.

Discover the link that Stratford Butterfly Farm has to the Rainforests of Belize and the ancient Maya civilisation whose artefacts have been replicated and are now on display in the Flight Area.

In the Discovery Zone find out about the plants we grow at the butterfly farm and see some of the world's largest and most camouflaged caterpillars on show with cocoons, giant silk moths and shining pupae hanging on the plants. See the amazing lifecycle of a butterfly within our Emerging Cage where you will find butterflies hatching from their chrysalis.

Observe the fascinating and strange in Mini-Beast Metropolis where stick insects, beetles, leafcutter ants, some of the worlds largest tarantula spiders and many more remarkable creatures are to be found.

After your visit take a look in the Papillon Gift Shop which offers a wide range of beautiful butterfly and nature inspired gifts for all ages.
