I visited Tropical world with my 3 year old and my mother. It's a good size for smaller children so they can easily manage to walk round it although it is completely pram friendly. We visited on an exceptionally hot day and the enclosed areas...More

What a place to go to when the weather's cold outside, so many animals you would normally not see, inc meerkats enclosure, bats, piranhas, all under cover, it's like a tropical Forrest in leeds.

All of the tropical house is inside and the enclosures are very warm so even if its horrible outside I wouldn't wear to many layers.

Sorry for the delay in answering. Many of the flying birds, butterflies etc are free to fly around. Some of the bigger species are in cages/tanks.
