Bugs and bonkers inventions in Stratford-upon-Avon

Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire

Head to an exotic paradise at Stratford Butterfly Farm and go crazy with the kids at the MAD Museum.

Quirky contraptions, dancing lasers, rolling ball machines, roaring mechanical dinosaur heads and whirligigs are bound to send you and the kids mad at the MAD Museum – a family museum with a difference in Stratford-upon-Avon!

Keep the adrenaline going with a visit to Arachnoland at Stratford Butterfly Farm and get up close and personal with spiders, stick insects and beetles. Let little ones watch in awe as hundreds of spectacular and vibrantly coloured butterflies fly overhead in an exotic environment with splashing waterfalls and fish-filled pools.

After all the fun, relax with a family break at the Holiday Inn, where kids can let off steam in the swimming pool and adults can recharge with a glass of wine overlooking the River Avon.
