The Butterfly House is home to hundreds of beautiful butterflies, free-flying in a specially planted tropical indoor garden. Visitors will be able to see species from around the world, look out for rare butterflies like the Horniman’s Swallowtail, and watch them hatch out in the puparium as they learn about the life-cycle and behaviour of these fascinating creatures.
Excitement has been mounting since plans for the new attraction were announced earlier this year, and following months of construction, planting the indoor garden with more than 60 exotic plant species, and training staff in butterfly care, the Butterfly House is now ready to open.
Ticket prices: Child £6; Adult £6, Family (2 adults, 2 children) £15. Prices include 10% voluntary Gift Aid donation. See horniman.ac.uk/butterflyhouse for more information. Horniman Members and Benefactors enjoy free, unlimited visits to the exhibition but will need to book tickets in advance.
