It seems a bit odd to call it a butterfly house, given that it is actually a giant caterpillar you can walk through.
It was one of the hottest days of the year during our visit (and London Zoo’s Butterfly Paradise is already heated to 27C) so the butterflies were very busy flying about.
As you can imagine, I was in heaven. I went through three different times and could have quite happily spent my entire zoo visit there (not sure Freya and Mark would have been as happy).
There were some as big as my hand, which took some getting used to.
Did you know London Zoo created the first exhibit exclusively for invertebrates in 1981 – thought to be the first butterfly house in the world?
Definitely one to add to my list of happy places.
Where is the best place you have visited recently?
