Shepreth Wildlife Park Christmas Fair and Santa's Grotto

Shepreth Wildlife Park opened in 1984 as a refuge for injured and orphaned animals. Since then it has become one of East Anglia’s major attractions participating in endangered breeding programmes, and raising over £200,000 for conservation projects worldwide working alongside Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity (SWCC).

Today, there are over 100 species to meet, with keeper talks and demonstrations throughout the day. Set in natural grounds, visitors can enjoy both in and outdoor play zones, warm tropical exhibits and animal encounter sessions, the park also provides lots of unique experiences from hand-feeding ring-tailed lemurs to coming face-to face with tigers. And for those under 16, the education team is on hand to amaze young minds with their ‘Discovery Experience' allowing children the opportunity to face their fears and expand their knowledge with an all-sensory, hands-on bug encounter. 

As members of BIAZA, the wildlife park is progressively and actively committed to its animals and conservation, and to educating the next generation of conservationists. Our conservation work covers an amazing biodiversity of species and habitats.  We are strongly committed to education with our multi award-winning education facility offering both on-site and outreach services. The park is also paving the way as a local champion in Green Tourism, having been credited with the GoldStar Award for our environmental awareness and practices.

The associated charity, SWCC, was founded in 2011 and in addition to raising funds for global conservation, it hosts a busy ‘Hedgehog Hospital’, rescuing and re-habilitating over 700 hedgehogs every year.
