Step into the almost spa-like setting of the Main Exhibition Greenhouse, where the heat and the flowers’ sweet fragrance help you forget winter. All around you, hundreds of colourful butterflies flit joyously about amidst the lush greenery, filling you with a sense of lightness and inviting you to relax.
All along the pathway, you can see them resting - a perfect opportunity to admire their beauty and the delicate flowers where they perch. When one gentry brushes past, you can't help but delight at the charming contact with nature. Our nature interpreters will be happy to answer your questions and explain how caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies and how they interact with their natural environment. They'll also explain all the beneficial connections between humans and nature.
