Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World, Lasswade Reviews
It is a small place and a bit far from Edinburgh city centre but it us worth a visit! There are obviously butterflies but also many other insects as huge centipedes. And not only insects but also spiders, snakes, geko. The persons are really prepared and happy to explain to you. Moreover next there is a wonderful local food store, a huge plants shop, and an aquarium shop
Always worth a visit although they have lost the leaf cutter ants they would go from one tank all the way through to another tank and back again I was told they will be getting a new Queen soon so hopefully start a new farm. There is a lot of hands on with the insects and talks plus having all these Butterflies zipping around Grandson loved it. Definitely worth a visit.
We went early and it was the best time. Got lots of chances to see and photograph the lovely butterflies. All the other things ate a bonus. Lots to see and do. There's not a cafe but we got our hand stamped to come back later if we wanted to go to the garden centre for a coffee. Great for all ages.
Fantastic place to visit. The handling sessions are second to none very very hands on the staff go out of their way to make sure no one misses out. As someone who has a keen interest in reptiles and arachnids i found the staff more than willing to discuss the animals in detail even went out of their way to try and introduce me to my favourite Tarantula the cobalt blue.
Great place for all ages. Fabulous to see the variety of butterflies 🦋 and 🐛 caterpillars in a sort of mini rainforest environment. Also snakes, lizards 🦎 spiders etc., in the rear area of the green house. Brilliant.
