Unfortunately Wild Britain is now closed. 

You'll discover one wild day out at Wild Britain (formerly Bedford Butterfly Park).

Starting your visit in the tropical jungle, become a Safari Spotter and earn your free badge.

With conditions just like the tropics, it's hot, hot, hot and you'll come face to face with butterflies, terrapins and Speedo the tortoise.

Everyday the keepers also introduce you to some of their not to common residents.

Discover how soft a tarantula is, feel cockroach scuttle across your palm and hold a large African Land Snail. With the programme changing daily, you'll always have a new friend to meet.

Elsewhere onsite, follow the Hedgehog Play Trail with fun puzzles and activities, cuddle fluffy rabbits in 'hands-on' corner and make your own arty creation to take home.

And no visit would be complete, without sampling the tasty snacks and home made cakes in the café.

Plus, Brand New for 2010! Can your find Moley in his mine? In your special hard hat and head torch, scramble, clamber and crawl through tunnels! Also, experience Rabbit Ranch and Rodent Run!

With all activities included in admission, it's great value too!
