A brand new Butterfly House at the National Botanic Garden of Wales will open on Friday July 1st 2016 bringing the exotic wonder of the tropics to Carmarthenshire.


The move is the first big, new attraction at the Garden for several years and is part of a plan to appeal to a wider audience. Already this summer, the Garden has opened a new £50,000 play park – complete with zipline and trampoline – a straw bale maze, water-zorbing pool and is promising 100 days of family activities.


The new attraction – which is in the Tropical House, designed by US-based and Wales-born architect John Belle, in the unique and historic Double Walled Garden – will feature amazing tropical butterfly species from all over the world. But there will also be strong focus on native species, which can be found in abundance in the walled garden.


Combined with the nearby Bee Garden, this area is already being called the “Pollinator Park”.


The Garden is open from 10am to 6pm seven days a week, with last entry at 5pm.
