I have been her e several times but more recently with my baby meeting up with friends. Wandlebury Country Park provided the perfect venue. We sat near the picnic tables and allowed the children to crawl around. Parking was reasonably priced so don't forget some change! On previous occasions I have brought my dog. It is a nuisance having to... More

Lovely area just to take a stroll, or the kids to run free & burn some energy. Also facilities for picnic or barbecue. Maintained paths so easy to walk in a tranquil wooded area. Not too large so can do the whole area, or branch off back to the beginning. Easy reach from Cambridge city centre.

This the most lovely place to walk IF ONLY one's dog did not need to be kept on a lead. It would be an ideal place for dogs to run freely and I see no reason for the strict adherence to the 'dog's on leads only' rule.

A great location for a walk - visited today with freezing fog and lots of frost on the ground - it was beautiful. A nice walk round the Iron Age Fort. I first visited here for a Cub Scout Day Camp - over 50 years ago - It is still a pleasure to visit (although the ditches on the hill... More

My child loves this place. Great for running, flying a kite, picnicking, exploring, etc. They have a pop up café in the summer and organise activities for all ages.

A lovely site for a walk and you can even see Ely Cathedral in the distance on a good day, although you have to look quite hard. A lovely unspoilt place, where all is peaceful, would definitely recommend a visit.

I have spent the last 15 years running around Wandlebury and I absolutely love it, every time it is different, I have run in the most dreadful rain, heavy snow and wonderful sunshine and every time this beautiful park has something wonderful to offer, thank you ☺

Lovely park with endless paths to explore with young and old. They also have a mobile tea room (Tilly's) that will be here most Sunday's for the summer. We just enjoyed some lovely home baked cakes and filter coffee. A nice end to Father's Day. Worth a visit.

Wandlebury ring is a great family walk and it is a great place for a picnic. It has been a few years since I was last here, so going back was awesome. The place remembered me as I did it and it felt as if I was visiting a very old friend. A short trek out of the city in... More
