Honfleur boasts a beautiful Butterfly House called Naturospace which has a wonderful free-flying collection of butterflies and birds housed in a tropical garden with the most wonderful flowers. We came across it whilst walking round the outskirts of Honfleur and as it was quite chilly at the time, decided to make an impromptu visit. It was indeed a very pleasant surprise and killed a few hours in the warmth!
The garden do a great job with a breeding program and you can watch the hatching process too. There’s also plenty of information regarding the ecology of butterflies and the impact of man on the environment. There’s even a short information film which shows in English (once in a while)!
