Private Tours: Mondays
and Tuesdays

Pre-booking only

Bug display

Nothing brings our animal displays more alive than being shown around the visitor centres by an experienced entomological guide who can point out the peculiarities of many of the invertebrates on show, talking about the weird and wonderful facts that surround many of our mini beasts.

The Parc is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, which allows us time to conduct private tours in small groups of no more than ten visitors at a time.

Each tour will last for approximately three hours to include a Q&A session in the Chrysalis Café at the end of the tour, where you will also be able to purchase light refreshments should you so wish.

Your experienced guide will not only enlighten you with some of the amazing facts relating to many of the mini-beasts you will see during the tour, but will also allow our visitors to handle an array of different creatures as we visit the different animal zones.

This is a rare opportunity to get an in-depth look at these amazing creatures, to hold some of them, and to learn something about their lives and behaviours.
