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.

  • 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.

  • Lovely place. Perhaps better when it's warmer. Took a while for things to wake up. Very beautiful layout. All animals well looked after. The actual butterfly house was amazing. Worth the entrance fee and great for families.

  • Was a fun day out with the kids to see the dinosaurs and all the animals. The kids enjoyed it. The only issue we had was there wasn't really much to see and within an hour you could easily see everything there. We felt for the price of entry it was expensive for what little was in there. The food wasn't too expensive and was very nice. All five of us was fed for around 25 quid which was good value, just a shame about the entry price.

  • Lots of different animals to look at, there is a large play area for children with plenty of activities, ride on toys, sand pit and adventure playground. The cafe is good and reasonably priced. When we went they had a dinosaur experience which was brilliant. All in all its a great day out for the kids.

  • Been about 5 times. Like it! Child always enjoys. Been for a party too. Lots of animals to see and touch. Displays of birds a must see. Keep an eye out for those bats in the butterfly house!
