Stratford Butterfly Farm United Kingdom

I'm pretty sure this is the best butterfly house in the south of England (the new enclosure at Whipsnade Zoo isn't bad, but is much smaller than this). Stratford Butterfly Farm is cheap to enter and features the widest variety of species I've seen at a butterfly house in England. The only better places I've visited have been in Malaysia and Thailand.

It has winding paths through the greenhouse and so many butterflies that you can go for hours finding new compositions here if insect macro photography is your thing.

It has a caterpillar room in which I've seen some very cool specimens and a small reptilarium with bugs, snakes, leaf cutting ants etc. although in my experience that room is too dark for photography.
