Go on an experiential walk to the Biosphere where a Wildlife Guardian will guide you into the enchanting world of butterflies, advising on how best to appreciate the fascinating creatures.

Wear a pair of rainbow spectacles to enhance your butterfly vision and sit on a throne for a selfie that makes you look like you have a pair of brightly-coloured wings.

The event, created by multi-sensory visionaries Bompas & Parr, was designed to highlight the fact that London’s butterfly population is in trouble - having declined by 76% over the last four decades - and will teach capital dwellers learn how to help our winged friends.

You'll be greeted by a “wildlife guardian”, be able to donate to butterfly conservation initiatives, watch them hatch and develop a newfound appreciation of their essential role in nature and how to take a crucial role in ensuring their future survival.
