The jewel of Forest Hill, the Horniman Museum, has a beautiful Butterfly House—and it’s just reopened to the public.
Now open daily from 10:30am-4pm, The Butterfly House at the Horniman is a spectacular place for a stroll. Lockdown was kind to the butterfly’s home, and the indoor garden has totally thrived over the summer. You’ll catch hundreds of rare and beautiful butterflies flying about the space, and you may even spot a few caterpillars and chrysalises if you’re lucky.

The garden is full of 500 species of exotic and tropical plants and that alone is worth the visit. But we all know the real highlight is having a butterfly land on you!
Tickets to the Butterfly House cost £7, with discounts for families. Tickets must be booked separately to the museum, and should be purchased in advance in order to control capacity. Head to the Horniman website for more information and to book.
