Opening times




Our regular opening hours are:
  • April-October: open Thursday to Sunday
  • All UK school holidays & bank holidays: open every day EXCEPT MONDAYS*
  • November-April: open weekends

*Monday’s are now ‘Me-time Mondays’ for us, when all aspects of The Bug Farm are closed for business to allow us all a little time for ourselves! 

Please read our guidelines on how to visit us before arrival – please note that these will be updated regularly.

Ideally, please book your entrance ticket online in advance of your visit, even if you have a season ticket.

Grub Kitchen operates on a first-come-first-served cafe basis and does not take bookings. If you would like to eat at Grub Kitchen only, you can turn up as a walk-in, but please be aware that preference is given to Bug Farm customers. Numbers onsite are restricted, so we cannot guarantee that we will be able to let you onsite at busy times if the site is full. If you want to guarantee a visit to Grub Kitchen, then please book a slot to visit The Bug Farm.

The Bug Farm and Grub Kitchen opening times are 10:30am – 4:30pm

Food is served in Grub Kitchen 12pm – 2:30pm and 12pm – 3:30pm during school holidays. Drinks and cakes are available all day.
