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.

  • This is a small zoo near Shepreth. We enjoyed it, as it is well laid out and has a positive feel. (A similar establishment further north that we visited seemed to be out to obstruct your enjoyment.) T...  read more »
  • My husband and I have just had a wonderful day as zookeeper here. Not only were the experiences great fun but all staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great day. We fed meerkats, bats, le...  read more »
  • We visited again with the children this summer. It was good to see another catering area available this time as previously we avoided the play area cafe as it appeared very noisy and busy. This new ca...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Great zoo for kids and adults alike. Big cats are great, as is the red squirrel. Diner could be better organised so take a picnic and save circa. £30 for 2 adults and a 4 year old meal.
  • This was a treat for our little girl. She's just getting big enough to appreciate a place like this. For us, it's a lovely manageable size for a half day visit, with enough things to do for a small toddler.
  • Always have a great day out here, not too big but still plenty to do and make a day of it, lovely cafe for a spot to eat and drink, whilst the kids can play in the soft play area, one of my favourite places to visit with the children
  • Amazing cozy Wildlife park near Cambridge. We did voluntary activity with the company a couple of time.
