There are many magical attractions throughout Wales, and within this book you will find one hundred of the very best of them. The Magic of Life is most definitely one of those attractions that deserves its place within this book. One of the many things that I liked about this attraction is the fact that it is not just a money making machine, it is a charitable trust that has been set up to ensure that all of its visitors understand everything that they are trying to achieve there. With colourful butterflies, Giant caterpillars and bizarre insectsbeing just some of the many things that can be seen here, together with woodlands galore, walks and waterfalls nearby, I would say there is at least 3 to 4 hours worth of fun. Giving you great value for your admission fees, which is another thing we love here at Top 100 Attractions.
