Each year over 1 million visitors pass through Roundhay Park’s Tropical World, home to one of the largest collections of tropical plants in the United Kingdom. Separated from the main park area by Street Lane, this garden includes a group of greenhouses with separate themed zones representing different climates from around the world. The site also contains a butterfly house and several aquariums, and a wide range of birds and reptiles living and moving freely within their sections of the landscaped garden. Drop by on a rainy day see this exotic indoor world of plants and animals, and be sure to stop by the garden’s nocturnal house to see bats and other creatures active only at night.

  • Definitely not worth the money. We saw 2 butterflies, other enclosures were empty, water was so dirty so couldn’t see in the tanks. Crocodile was alone in a very small enclosure.needs a lot of work.  more »

  • We had a wonderful time at tropical world, it is really cool and the environments for the animals are well designed and properly maintained. Price is reasonable and the staff are friendly. Parking is limited and shared with the park, but there is room for maybe 100 cars. Toilets are well maintained and clean.
  • We took two of our grandchildren, one aged 4 and one aged 2 , when we had them for the weekend. They both fully enjoyed being able to get up close and feel apart of the animals surrounding s. It’s a nice size to get around with younger children, who might normally get bored easily if you trail them around for too long. This is a fantastic place to go no matter how old you are! Lovely canteen with great coffee I must say. Always extremely clean and really good experiences as you walk round with such a variation of animals!
