The Butterfly Jungles Experience at Hall Place

We have opened the 'Butterfly Jungles Experience' at Hall Place where visitors walk amongst stunning free flying butterflies from around the world in a rainforest environment full to the brim with beautiful exotic flowers.

All stages of their incredible lifecycle can be observed at first hand from egg laying,fascinating caterpillars and incredible pupae from which visitors can see the adult butterflies hatch and dry their wings.Witnessing this metamorphosis is extremely educational too and an invaluable resource for Schools where children can also learn about the tropics.

We have special feeding stations where you can observe the fruit feeding species, a favourite with Children and Adults alike!

The exhibit reopens Feb 2019

About Hall Place

Hall Place is a stunning Grade 1 listed Tudor House built in 1537 surrounded by 65 hectares of magnificent formal gardens and landscaped parkland that have something to offer visitors throughout the year.

The Hall Place gardens are one of only a handful of sites in the UK to have won the Civic Trust’s Green Flag award for eleven successive years and also have coveted Green Heritage Site status.

There are many features around the spectacular gardens. The west lawn boasts a stunning topiary lawn of chess pieces and the Queen’s Beasts, planted to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. You can stroll around enclosed gardens, rose and herb gardens and admire inspirational herbaceous borders full of colour throughout the year.

The parkland, through which the River Cray flows, can be explored at a leisurely pace whilst discovering the exceptional collection of trees and the profusion of wildlife that call the estate home.

The former walled gardens have display gardens, model gardens and a sub-tropical plant house with a host of exotic plants, where you can see bananas ripening in mid-winter.

The new visitor centre in the grounds offers a riverside tearoom with unparalleled views of the parkland.
