Shepreth Wildlife Park, Shepreth

#5 of 43 in Outdoors in Cambridgeshire
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.

  • Wonderful time with three grandchildren! Lots to see and do! The staff were very polite and informative. Will definitely be returning!
  • Lovely little place, all well kept, animals well cared for, children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, although a cold wet day still wonderful! Must add the bat cave is amazing! Huge bats just flying around you, love them. Got to pet a lovely big cockroach in reptile house... nice little bonus too, thank you for a nice visit guys!!
  • The animals are kept in very good conditions. The whole park is very clean. Good education centre and keeper talks. Reasonable price for entry.
  • A wonderful place to go for the day! Despite the train and amazing playground, it is all for the animals and so creates the perfect crossover of fun and conservation.
  • Quite small but makes it perfect for young children. It's clean, tidy and very friendly
