Big Bugs have arrived!

There is something for everyone at #BigBugTour

Join us from 2-30 July.

Have you ever wondered what tiny little insects really look like up close? Well here’s your chance to find out, as intu brings the outdoors indoors right across the UK – with big bugs on tour.

This is your chance to see 12 giant, intricately-designed and extremely lifelike bugs up close as these giant bugs will be placed around the centre for ‘little explorers’ to find!

From honeybees to ladybirds, you’ll have the chance to examine the features of these magnificent creatures without the need for a magnifying glass, they are wonderfully realistic, so feel free to inspect them closely. This event is going to be unmissable.

Unfortunately the hornet has had to fly away to the bug hospital for a check-up, but will be back soon!
