Butterfly World in St. Albans, Hertfordshire is now Closed.


Unfortunately, Butterfly World has now closed.

Butterfly World in St. Albans sadly closed at the end of the 2015 season. Please see the following extract from an article published in The Herts Advertiser on 7th January 2016.

In early December, an email to “friends” of the project - based off Noke Lane in Chiswell Green - from the attraction’s chairman, John Breheny, said the 2015 season was to be its last, because of a succession of trading losses.

He explained its closure would proceed with “immense regret”. Despite the efforts of dedicated staff and volunteers, the Breheny Group had previously “twice rescued the project from insolvency and certain closure”.

Shocked supporters from across the world have since signed an online petition in their tens of thousands, calling upon the privately owned group to try and save Butterfly World.
