The Gardens

Cambridgeshire's Wildlife Breeding Centre

Was opened in 1972 by the Simmons family and has been created out of their love, interest and concern for the World's wildlife. The zoo is continually expanding as more of the World's threatened species are taken on board their land based 'ark', so however often you visit there is always something new to see.

Find time to visit the Zoo and you'll discover lots to interest the whole family - Amur Tigers, African Lions, Snow Leopards, Lynx, Binturongs, Brazilian Tapir, Wallabies, Porcupines, Parrots, Macaws, Toucans, Hornbills, Eagle Owls, Giant Tortoises, Snakes, Tarantula Spiders and many others!- All set in 16 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.

Lots to See, Learn & Enjoy

The Zoo is an ideal place to find out more about the creatures we share the Earth with!

These visitors now have a better understanding of snakes and you can meet some them face to face!

To make the most of School and Educational Trips, please ask for a Teacher's Information Pack - Worksheets and talks are available.

People are animals too and we realise there is a need for all of us to have contact with our fellow creatures, so we have arranged Special days when you can meet 'Blossom' our Boa Constrictor and 'Pip' our Eagle Owl. A full programme of events has been arranged - details of which can be found on our website

After the excitment of seeing all our animals, relax in our beautiful gardens - why not bring a picnic and spend the day?
