Kids are going to love this place! The Tropical World at Roundhay Park has become one of the most coveted family attractions in Leeds. Situated just three miles from the city centre, this terrain is great to take a trek through the rainforest, relax in the simulated environs of Australia and to take a quick excursion through the desert. This is one of the best ways to learn the tropical habitats and other exotic places from around the world: including jungles; deserts; and creatures of the night. 

Some of the zones inside the park are

  • Australasia House: The Australasia House is home to a huge variety of plants, including the rare Jade Vine. 
  • Creature Corner: You can see lizards, spiny mice and snakes.
  • Amazon/ South American House
  • The Desert House

  • Lakes, streams and a landscaped canal in the canal gardens.

Tropical World, Leeds Reviews

  • Tropical world is a place in Leeds where there are lots of tropical animals like fish , butterflies and monkeys.There also is a cafe and an amazing gift shop. My favourite part is the aquarium because there are lots of different coloured sea creatures. I think people should go if they want to learn more about tropical animals and plants. I gave it five stars because there are lots of things to see and enjoy.

  • Tropical world is a piece of modern history in Leeds. Those resident in the area have seen it expand and grow to its current proportions. A lovely place to stop and enter a world with mini waterfalls and butterfly's. I can't help but feel for the meercats and the nocturnal animals kept caged in this place. As beautiful as these animals are you can almost feel their restlessness living out their lives in such a confined place. I don't feel that Tropical world had to expand to keeping such mammals in the place. The various insects turtles and butterfly's seemed adequate and more appropriate than trying to make the place into a mini zoo. That being said most families, particularly with kids will enjoy the experience. And also for those looking for something slightly different will find some interest here. It used to be free now at £6:20 for adults and £3 for kids (discounted with a Leeds card), could feel a bit expensive. Tropical world is surrounded by Gardens and across the road is Roundhay Park. Better food served at The Roundhay Fox pub, metres away from Tropical World. Parking is generally always available around the area and is free.

  • A wonderful place, full of beautiful creatures. Butterflies and birds fly around you as you wander through the different areas of this tropical paradise. A really relaxing experience. The meerkats are adorable and the staff know their stuff if you have any questions. There is a cafe on site selling basic lunches all reasonably priced. Disabled access to everything, and carers get in free. Education is fun here. Can get very busy which can slow you down if you are in a chair or are pushing a pram, but if you don't mind giving way , you'll have a great time.

  • Wasn't sure what to expect after reading mixed reviews but went for a look regardless. Firstly, it's location is beautiful - and not just for in a city, for anywhere. We went first thing on a Thursday and it was easy to get to and no queues to get in. Not the biggest place, but plenty to look at and take pictures of. It's perfectly priced for what you get and will definitely be visiting again in the future although we'll probably make a day of it and the park next time. Many thanks!

  • It was a excellent experience. A well maintained little gem. Entry fee is much cheaper compared to many other places. You can see butterflies, various tropical fish, crocodile and reptiles. A good collection of birds and few interactive meerkats. Children loved it.
