In the Wild:

All play zones remain closed for your safety until the Summer. Due to restrictions in place, we unfortunately are unable to maintain social distancing rules and allow play on the play zones for all our visitors at this time. We are hoping to open these again in line with government guidelines by July, however this will also depend on repair works being completed by this time. We are taking this opportunity to update both the under 5’s and 5 to 14 indoor interactive zones and move them all under one roof. We are also using this time to improve the outside play areas too. Safari Train: unfortunately this will not be running during the season of 2021. We apologise for this inconvenience, which has been caused by restrictions on us and not being able to carry out the annual maintenance inspection and service due to the coronavirus impact on resources.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

  • The children enjoyed and appreciated all you and your colleagues did – they gave us a lot of helpful and constructive information. Your classroom is looking great – you have created such a lovely inviting place for the children. I filled in a visitors questionnaire today because it was so nice to visit again. Shepreth is a lovely place to be, without trying to sell itself or have that ‘glossy commercial’ look that so many attractions have these days. Its just a very genuine place quietly getting on with lots of good work and, I am sure, creating a very loyal following among all who encounter it – in short, a rare treasure!

  • I just want to say a huge THANK YOU for a wonderful experience that my family enjoyed yesterday at Shepreth.

    Despite the unfortunately changeable weather on Saturday my partner and I along with our 3 children (aged 3,6 and 9) had a most enjoyable day. There was so much to see, do, stroke, learn about, play on, etc that we didn’t want to leave!

    However the icing on the cake for all of us was when we went into Bug City where we met a charming and informative keeper who showed us some of the animals and answered lots of questions from my inquisitive 9 year old about spiders, lizards, snakes and scorpions.

    Please pass on our gratitude to all your friendly staff as it was so nice to take my family somewhere that catered for all ages and where the staff clearly are enjoying what they do and not forgetting all the animals that are so well looked after and cared about.

    Looking forward to visiting again when we can – please keep up the great work!

  • I thoroughly recommend the outreach programme. The presence of live animals in the classroom inspired my students and helped their understanding of many parts of the science national curriculum. The interpretation officers are informative and very knowledgeable. They pitched their presentation at the appropriate level, encouraging students to ask many questions and were happy to discuss my needs before the talk to ensure its relevance to my class. The whole event was a very easy way to organise a really exciting experience.

  • Many thanks to ALL, Owain absolutely loved his Experience Keeper Day,  fact that much he wants to do  it again next birthday also,

    So Many Thanks Again to all.
