National Insect Week is HERE

Butterfly House at Hanwell Zoo

Wednesday, June 27, 2018 - 10:00 to 17:00

Our butterfly house is an adventurous step into the tropics.

With hundreds of colourful butterflies and beautiful tropical plants, there is always something new to see.

Learn about the life cycle of this awesome insect or simply relax and enjoy a little bit of paradise, in the heart of Hanwell.

You can walk right though the enclosure, with the butterflies flying free and feeding on fruits and nectar from all of the beautiful flowers.

We discourage touching, as their wings are very sensitive, but if you wear something bright enough, they might just land on you to say hello.

Age limits or guidance

Suitable for all

Cost details

Adult £2.50, Child £1

Buzzing bumblebees

Bumblebees can do 'buzz' pollination, wing muscles vibrate their bodies to extract and transfer flower pollen.
