Great Family Days Out In Cambridgeshire

What To Look For In A Taxi Company

There are so many great family days out in Cambridgeshire, whether you have toddlers or teenagers, there will always be a great family day out to excite and interest children of all ages (even the big kids!). We have put together some of our favourite family days out in Cambridgeshire;

Hamerton Zoo – Sawtry, Huntingdon

Hamerton is like a local secret; it’s a fantastic zoo with tigers, monkeys, birds, donkeys, alpacas, meerkats, wallabies and many more animals. There is a large play area for the children with picnic areas throughout the park where you can sit and relax while the kids let off some steam. The coffee shop has a selection of food and drinks and there is a reasonably priced gift shop where you can treat the kids to a memorable gift to remember the day. The only downside to this great day out is that it cannot be accessed by public transport, mainly because nobody wants a tiger to be their next door neighbour! But you can get a taxi in Cambridgeshire to take you right to the door.

Sacrewell Farm – Thornhaugh, Peterborough

This is a charming little place that is ideal for younger children. You and your children will get the chance to get up close and personal with lambs, donkeys, sheep and other farmyard animals. You can cheer on the lambs in their race, follow your duck down the stream in the duck race, check out the Wildlife Trail and the old mill house before hitting the Activity Barn where the kids can run wild in the large soft play area. Similarly to Hamerton Zoo, this can be a tricky place to access by public transport, so if you don’t have a car then a taxi in Cambridgeshire would be recommended.

Skylark Maize Maze and Funyard – Wimblington, March

You’ll need comfortable walking shoes for this great fun day out where you can spend hours getting lost in the maize maze that covers over 12 acres of land. There are loads of activities at Skylark too, including pig racing, giant inflatable slides, an interactive tractor ride with water guns, zip wire, obstacle course and loads more. If you don’t have a car then you use the number 56 bus which will take you to Wimblington and it is a short walk from the bus stop.

The Imperial War Museum – Duxford

This is a wonderful, fun and educational day out for the whole family, even the grandparents; everyone will get a real feel for what life was really like during the war and there are various displays and exhibitions at different times throughout the year, meaning that no to visits will ever be the same. The Imperial War Museum has a large collection of tanks, military vehicles, artillery, and two RAF Type 2 hangers to explore. There is ample free parking at the museum, or you can get on the Royston – Whittlesford Parkway train which will bring you out near the museum.


As we said, there are loads of things to do in Cambridgeshire with lots of great days out on offer; these are just some of our favourites. What is your favourite day out in Cambridgeshire?
