Shepreth Wildlife Park, Shepreth
(4.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Shepreth Wildlife Park first started as a private sanctuary in 1979. WillersMill Wild Animal Sanctuary, as it was known, was a refuge for creatures great and small, including rescued foxes, hedgehogs and badgers, alongside many different species of unlicensed exotics. After care and rehabilitation many were released back into the wild, but where this was not possible, they lived out their life at the sanctuary.

Today, Shepreth Wildlife Park still hosts a busy ‘Hedgehog Hospital’ but also participates in national and international breeding programmes for endangered species. It remains as committed as ever to its animals and conservation, and to educating the next generation of conservationists.

  • A really lovely wildlife park, perfect for families or animal lovers hoping to avoid crowds often found at the major zoos. The park has a great selection of animals who all appear to be well cared for. Entrance fees are ever so slightly on the expensive side though e still thought it was worth paying to support the park and its upkeep. We'd definitely consider visiting again.
  • We love coming to Shepreth, although we often feel it's a wee bit pricey (NHS discount and discounts for travelling by train). We always see loads of the animals, enjoy the soft play,staff are lovely. Food isn't a massive attraction, but it's reasonable.
  • Even on a soaking wet day, every child at my son's birthday had a great time.
  • Had a lovely morning here, the park was beautifully kept and tidy, a great selection of animals whom all seemed content and happy with their enclosures. They had many animals I hadn't seen before at larger zoos, which was a lovely surprise. The keepers all seemed to have a fantastic relationship with the animals in their care, as we quite often saw them feeding them from their hands and handing them. I highly recommend visiting this lovely little park, and with it so easy to get to and such a low admission price, we'll definitely be visiting again soon.
  • A chance to see some beautiful animals in well arranged environments. Friendly and helpful staff.
