Overview & description

As you enter Bugtopia Hornsea, you can choose your adventure.

Our “Jungle Trail” is an indoor tropical butterfly house which is home to incredible invertebrates from all over the world. As you explore, you will see free flying butterflies and birds all around you and around our Jungle, there are enclosures housing a variety of spectacular invertebrate species. You can spend time exploring the “Phasmid Forest,” the UK’s FIRST stick insect walkthrough, to try your hand at wild insect hunting. There are several hundred stick insects in the Phasmid Forest, but you’ll have to look closely to see them!

Complete your adventure with our popular “Explorer Show,” where you can learn even more about the creatures you have seen! Our Explorer Show lasts around 45 minutes and is an opportunity to learn about a variety of creepy crawlies, have a go at handling them, face your fears and ask any questions you may have.

Our amazing Explorer’s are fonts of knowledge when it comes to these animals. Even if you enter the show really scared, they will infuse you with curiosity, help you overcome your phobias and ensure adults and children alike have a wonderful visit!

On weekdays in term time, our Explorer Shows commence at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

During weekends and school holidays, shows run on the hour from 11am until 4pm. 

During weekends and school holidays, booking is advised to ensure you get a space on your desired show. You can book by calling us on 01964 204240. Payment is required on booking to secure your spaces. Booking is not required for our Jungle Trail.
