Wandlebury Country Park

Wandlebury Country Park

Wandlebury Country Park is based on gently rolling chalk hills just south of the City of Cambridge, with chalk grassland meadows grazed by sheep and Highland Cattle, deciduous woodland, ponds and a traditional orchard complete with observation beehive. At its heart is the historic Wandlebury Ring - the remains of an iron age hill fort and 18th century stables and gardens.
We provide a memorable experience of the countryside for adults, children and young people. Our learning activities are fun-filled as well as educational.
Led by our team of enthusiastic and experienced field teachers, the emphasis is on practical, hands-on investigations and activities in the open air. Programmes are linked to the National Curriculum and all our activities are risked assessed. Follow up resource packs containing site specific food webs and identification keys are available and activities can be tailored to your specific needs.
We cater for pre-school, school and college groups from the Foundation Years through Key Stage 1-4, and Sixth Form Studies. We also offer visits for youth groups, home educating groups, out of school clubs and adult groups.
