3 things to do this weekend.

Byline: Adrian Monti and Judy Yorke

(1) You can escape the winter chill at the Butterflies in the Glasshouse display at the Royal Horticultural Society's Wisley gardens in Surrey from tomorrow until late February. Different butterflies from around the world will flutter past you among the lush, tropical plants. The butterfly house is open daily between 10am-4pm and is free with normal admission - (2) Go to an exhibition showing off the metal creations that appear in the books with Mr Watt, Grumpy Man of Metal. It's currently on at Enginuity, one of the museums at Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. The quirky Mr Watt character was created by blacksmith and artist Jon Mills and has wide appeal to both young and older audiences. The exhibition runs until August.
