Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Essex / Chelmsford / Tropical Wings Zoo
Converted from a greenhouse to a butterfly house in 1999, Tropical Wings Zoo is also home to reptiles, meerkats and wallabies. Enjoy the sensation of butterflies landing on you and seize the opportunity to photograph one. Feed the fish and laugh at the antics of the parrots. You will not require a whole day to explore, so stop in at the cafe, shop, and let the children enjoy the play areas, with Mr. Macawber’s Fun House and Monkey Run for older children and the Meer Kat Lookout for toddlers. Walking outdoors can be tricky when muddy. Get there by bus, train, car, or bike. Parking is free.

Tropical wings is sadly no longer open. It was a fantastic venue with much to see and do. A real loss to south woodham

It's great to see this place open again. I feel that they should focus their investment in what's already there before they continue expanding the place but definitely great for the family. Make sure you bring your wellies!
It was nice to go back and see the new changes. Would recommend you take your own refreshments as the queues were very long and only one kiosk. Gift shop could be larger to be honest as it's only a shed really.
