About Tropical Butterfly House, Sheffield

Prepare to be transported into a Disney Dream World, where trilling Sparrows perch upon your palms and Meerkats peek at you while munching on their meal. Fresh, green leaves will surround you and your loved ones as you wander through this soothing, organic environment. This is also a fabulous place to learn about animals, while admiring them at the same time. Interactive, intriguing and inspiring, the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre in Sheffield will foster joy in the hearts of everyone –young and old.

The Tropical Butterfly House is a sultry enclosure, where butterflies of different sizes and colours flit and flutter through the air. Accompanying these flickering fairies are feisty birds and Egyptian fruit bats, singing and gliding through the air. As wings stretch out up above you, you’ll find an incredible array of life just around your ankles! Cute Iguanas and sneaky Chameleons will slyly watch you from behind green leaves and down below, all kinds of bugs, including glow in the dark Scorpions, go on with their daily business. The Meerkat Mansion is the abode of a family of adorable, fuzzy meerkats. What initially started out as 3 meerkats has now grown to a family of 14 all headed by Mrs. Meerkat.

Come and meet Simples, Fizzy, Buttons, Crunchie, Twix and the whole large eyed, button nosed gang! The Small Animal House is sure to be a huge hit with little kids as it’s home to the Centre’s tiniest members, namely the guinea pigs, rabbits, chicks and chipmunks. Lemur Heights, the newest exhibit, is a walk-through Lemur enclosure where these extraverted little guys roam freely.

There are also more interactive areas, where you can feed the animals and watch some of them perform incredible tricks. You can tip toe around the ducks and geese in the Farm Barn and offer them some munchies in return for their friendship. Gloriously large Giant Continental Rabbits await you, as does Corrie the Shetland Pony! Animal food is purchasable in the premises. The most spectacular exhibit, titled Birds of Prey, feature large Owls, Falcons, Hawks, Kites, Vultures and more! This is where you’ll meet Jet, Sonic and Rogue, Black Kite siblings determined to show off their aerial acrobatics, as are the McCawsAlfie, Kato, Che, Esteban.

The real star of the program is Odin, a raven who solves puzzles, paints and plays fetch with aplomb. Another treat is the daily Parrot Display; colourful and remarkably talented birds from Australia, South America and Africa who spend their hours playing basketball, skateboarding and chatting up whoever’s closest!

After playing with and learning about all these critters, you can finally relax at Butterfly Cafe. Kids can tumble around in the Realm of Camelot adventure playground or channelize their energy creatively at the indoor Activity and Craft Center. This beautiful place is also a great site for picnics and birthday parties, both of which they make special arrangements for.

Tropical Butterfly House, Sheffield Reviews

  • A beautifully presented attraction with a great variety of animals for you to see and learn about. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the animals look happy and healthy in well designed, spacious enclosures (I work for another zoo so I am always looking at enclosures and animal care arrangements, and these are first class.) The tropical house is fascinating and the Meerkats are, as always, ridiculously cute and funny. Get in with the Lemurs, they're cheeky and clever, and the bird of prey demonstrations are fascinating and exciting. To top it all off, there is a cute little cafe, serving excellent coffee and delicious cakes (amongst other things.) If you're in the area and looking for a good day out for the whole family then I definitely recommend coming here.

  • Excellent all round. Whether you are two or 99 this place will hold interest for you all the way round. A visit with our grandchildren was spellbinding for us all. The layout is well thought out and the staff are on hand to answer questions regarding all the displays of animals, birds and insects when needed. The many timed displays on offer through the day are educational and hands on helping the old and young alike to improve their knowledge. We were particularly impressed by the ringtailed Lemurs who were captivating! The price is fair for the content provided and the well stocked cafe serves a wide variety of fresh cooked fare in pleasant surroundings. No time pressure allows you too explore in your own time and overall one of the best family day's out you could wish for.

  • Was my first visit, we went especially for the Dinosaur Trail as our little boy loves them! Would highly recommend it and we will definitely go back. Price on the steep side as only £1 difference for child to adults but this wouldn't stop me going back. Really lovely gardens, animals look well cared for, good play area for kids although not much for under 4's. Cafe nice with a big selection of hot and cold food at a reasonable price.

  • Went with family. Plenty for the kids to do, cafe slightly pricey so I'd suggest packing a picnic. (There was 10 of us) entry into the park is reasonable priced. Good public transport links, easily sign posted nice 15 minute walk. Only downside is the pavement stops about halfway down to the park to which you have to walk on the grass next to the busy road. All in all a fun day out for the family lots to see and do!

  • Great place for the price. We spent over four hours there and didn't even see everything. The food in the cafe is great. The talks are lovely and you get great up close interaction with the animals - and that's before buying the VIP ticket! Amazing assortment of animals, and many roaming freely in the park. All of the staff were lovely. However, there is limited baby change and disabled toilets (I counted one at the start and one at the end. They are also combined, so it's a bit difficult for both parents and disabled toilet users.
