What You'll Get

The Deal

Fans of creepy crawlies can get their fix and learn more about the micro-world of insects with a day trip (usually £7.50 each) to Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World. Guests can stroll through the ‘Bugs and Beasties’ exhibition and gaze upon the tarantulas, scorpions and cockroaches, before visiting the Reptile Room featuring chameleons, lizards and pythons. Daily animal handling sessions are held at 12pm and 3pm, with snakes making a special appearance every Saturday afternoon for a feeding session. Guests can wander through the indoor rainforest filled with tropical butterflies, with a laminated butterfly identification sheet (£2) on-hand to help pick out their favourites. Those who just can’t get enough of all things scaly, slippery and slithering may wish to opt for an annual season pass (£30.95), ensuring year-long access to the park. Located just off the bypass on the outskirts of the city, the attraction is open seven days a week and features a Jungle Gift Shop, free parking and an on-site restaurant at Dobbies Garden Centre for refreshments.
