Interesting place to go to. My child loves it. Asks to go there every school holidays. Beautiful butterflies, colorful birds etc... Nice restaurant on the site.. tasty and healthy options.
Tropical world is a place in Leeds where there are lots of tropical animals like fish , butterflies and monkeys.There also is a cafe and an amazing gift shop. My favourite part is the aquarium because there are lots of different coloured sea creatures. I think people should go if they want to learn more about tropical animals and plants. I gave it five stars because there are lots of things to see and enjoy.
It was a excellent experience. A well maintained little gem. Entry fee is much cheaper compared to many other places. You can see butterflies, various tropical fish, crocodile and reptiles. A good collection of birds and few interactive meerkats. Children loved it.
On the good side there is quite a lot to see and when a very large blue or swallow tail butterfly flies by you it's magical. For young ones there are many creatures to see but also in quite a few tanks it's difficult to see anything. On the down side its starting to look a bit tired and some of the bigger fish have outgrown their tanks and the birds look fed up and bedraggled. Tropical World is trying to raise awareness of the plight of fauna in some parts of the world but I am not sure if this is the best way to go about it. My granddaughter enjoyed it more than me. I felt sad for any creature living in that environment.
Wasn't sure what to expect after reading mixed reviews but went for a look regardless. Firstly, it's location is beautiful - and not just for in a city, for anywhere. We went first thing on a Thursday and it was easy to get to and no queues to get in. Not the biggest place, but plenty to look at and take pictures of. It's perfectly priced for what you get and will definitely be visiting again in the future although we'll probably make a day of it and the park next time. Many thanks!
Tropical world is a piece of modern history in Leeds. Those resident in the area have seen it expand and grow to its current proportions. A lovely place to stop and enter a world with mini waterfalls and butterfly's. I can't help but feel for the meercats and the nocturnal animals kept caged in this place. As beautiful as these animals are you can almost feel their restlessness living out their lives in such a confined place. I don't feel that Tropical world had to expand to keeping such mammals in the place. The various insects turtles and butterfly's seemed adequate and more appropriate than trying to make the place into a mini zoo. That being said most families, particularly with kids will enjoy the experience. And also for those looking for something slightly different will find some interest here. It used to be free now at £6:20 for adults and £3 for kids (discounted with a Leeds card), could feel a bit expensive. Tropical world is surrounded by Gardens and across the road is Roundhay Park. Better food served at The Roundhay Fox pub, metres away from Tropical World. Parking is generally always available around the area and is free.
This is a real gem! The animals found here are genuinely unique - animals you may not find in your average aquarium. You walk through a few different "areas" and I belive it worth going in blind so they are not spoiled! A lot of the exhibits are "open" I. E. The animals are not caged and walk with you, flying around you and that is really cool! One huge warning however - we went on a relatively hot day (around 21 degree Celsius) - it was very very hot inside. If you are prone to heat please take some items to cool yourself down inside. There are some intervals where you can go outside to cool down - but there's not many! Otherwise the price of the ticket is really cheap - £6.20 and under 5's go in for free! Well worth the visit and will be visiting here again!
Amazing journey through tropical world includes butterfly's garden, aviary, wild and night animals, aquarium, meerkats, even bugs section with ants working 24/7. A lot of green full with unusual plants and flowers. Amazing experience for everyone, it can be really instructive for kids. U must be prepared that it's very hot and muggy inside, so take your sweater and warm clothes off.
Nice place to visit in Leeds. Very very warm though so wear layers you can remove. And you can leave buggies parked anywhere so that makes the journey around the place a little more hard work but we enjoyed it.
Nice little gem we found whilst visiting Leeds! Not the largest of places but can easily spend a couple of hours here. Have a good variety of animals, plants and general environments to look at and experience. Nice break from the city!
A wonderful place, full of beautiful creatures. Butterflies and birds fly around you as you wander through the different areas of this tropical paradise. A really relaxing experience. The meerkats are adorable and the staff know their stuff if you have any questions. There is a cafe on site selling basic lunches all reasonably priced. Disabled access to everything, and carers get in free. Education is fun here. Can get very busy which can slow you down if you are in a chair or are pushing a pram, but if you don't mind giving way , you'll have a great time.
Good value for money, had a free entry coupon for one child so even better. It's bigger than it looks.
Needed somewhere near and indoors for a few hours with our baby and not cost the earth. Tropical world seemed to tick all the boxes. Set in Roundhay Park and with free parking near by (5min walk) but also on street parking too. I thought it was a lovely place to kill a couple of hours with our baby who is just started taking notice of animals/fish. We found it easy to navigate around on the path with our pram but could imagine on v busy days a bit akward but we were fine. It’s lovely and warm in there which is needed for the type of animals in there. So wear layers. On a cold day in March it was nice to feel the warmth .. we felt like we were abroad!! We enjoyed watching the big fishes and the meerkats and bird spotting. The butterfly were beautiful. Even watching the the chrysalis hatch out was fascinating. The pond areas seemed a bit smelly and found it differcult to spot the fish. The cafe staff were very friendly and helpful about the park and gave us tips for our next visit on a nicer day. Although we felt the food was a bit pricey. Two toasties, two drinks and bowl of chips to share (£2.40) were nearly £20! Not sure if they do feeding times where you can assist as I didn’t see anything advertised. Overall a lovely play to visit for a couple of hours tops.
Really enjoyed it the first time I went, it was a hot day and the que took about 5 minutes. I then went on a cold winter day and the que was 40 minutes, all outside in the freezing cold, wasn't pleasant. However saying that, the place itself is amazing. Its really nice. Really diverse range of animals/fish etc.
Lots of butterflies but also good place to see reptiles, birds, frogs, meercats. Our favourite part was the nocturnal area which is understandably dimmed for the comfort and better daytime viewing of the animals with bats, nocturnal marsupials and different rodents. Most had information boards to tell you about the creatures, including the free flying ones. However some of the boards definitely didn't match up to what was in the tanks at the time which was a shame. Very warm and humid- if your planning a trip in winter wear layers so you can take some off. Many people going around with pushchairs and wheelchairs and there were toilets half way around. Not a full days activities - we walked around in less than an hour with plenty of dawdling to look at things but combined with a visit to the gardens, park or pub opposite and it makes a great day out :) Well worth the £6 entry.
Vast improvement over the Tropical World I visited a few years ago, the refurbishment has transformed the place and made it feel like the Aztec Zone on Crystal Maze with added plants and animals. It's no longer a gift shop with a naff attraction, it's a cohesive venue from entry to the cafe. It's still a fairly compact attraction but this is reflected in the low prices. I did note that they managed to process 3 families at the till in the time it took to do our prepaid tickets though so it wasn't exactly a time saver. If you've been before and been disappointed give it another chance.
A lovely place to go for adults and children, there's a wide range of things to see for butterflies, birds, meerkat and more. I'm 26 and thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
This place was really busy and is laid out in a "queue" form like standing in line at Disney Land. It can get quite hot and claustrophobic. However, there was quite a selection of animals, birds, reptiles and fish in well thought out displays revolving around different biomes. Try not to get caught out by their toy shop. It's kitted out with cute cuddly toys and science kits. Tropical world itself is sorrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland. Parking is free but very limited.
Went in winter so maybe not the best of time to go. Whilst there was plenty to see, sometimes you did really have to try to find the animals. Think in summer it would definitely be better, especially the outside garden as it was a bit barren, but to be expected given the time of year. I found sometimes you did get into bottlenecks, especially with families and prams. Parking was a bit difficult, parked down the road but only just found a spot. Did enjoy myself, and think it would be very good for kids too.
