Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm is getting ready to reopen its doors to the public as a Covid-19 secure environment from Monday 17th May.
Ahead of welcoming back visitors, owner Clive Farrell will release thousands of stunning tropical butterflies, which the Farm has been breeding especially during lockdown.
Featuring 250 different butterfly species sourced from 20 different countries, the Farm’s Rainforest Flight Area is the largest tropical butterfly display in the UK. Visitors can expect to see a huge number of free-flying butterflies, of all shapes and sizes, as well as resident iguanas Prudence & Bennie, Indian ring-necked parakeets, an African mousebird, Chinese painted quail – and new residents, the small but loud zebra finches.
While closed to visitors, staff have been busy making improvements to other areas of the Farm and look forward to revealing a number of changes next week.
A stunning new 1,000-litre tropical Aquarium has been introduced to the Minibeast Metropolis and a brand-new sound system featuring ‘sounds of the rainforest’ offers visitors a more immersive experience. The outdoor and tropical gardens have also been replanted and the walkways within the Flight Area edged with Cotswold stone.
Tickets to visit Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm must be booked in advance using the online booking system, with daily capacity limits in place to ensure social distancing. For more information go to https://butterflyfarm.digitickets.co.uk/tickets
