National Insect Week returns in 2020

Butterfly House at Cumberland House

The Butterfly House is open following an extensive modernisation project. The transformed greenhouse is now capable of hosting large volumes of neo-tropical butterflies during the warm summer months, plus our new puparium where the pupae can transform.  Butterfly Season is May - September and there are currently butterflies on the wing.
