Jungle Experience — near Halifax

We stumbled upon this place after a trip to a rather eccentric cacti nursery (see here) and were glad of the shelter from the rain. In the setting of Manor Heath park near Halifax, Jungle Experience is pretty much as advertised; a group of glasshouses with a variety of plants and animals to make you feel a world away from West Yorkshire. 

A huge bonus of this place is that you have to enter via a turnstile which is activated by inserting a £1 coin... As we walked around I kept reminding myself of that £1 and thinking about how much you get for your money - totally worth it over and over.
