Crown Lakes Nature Reserve at Whittlesey

Peterborough revealed as one of the top spots for wildlife and nature in the East of England ...and we're ahead of Cambridge!

With the start of spring fast approaching and the recent soar in temperatures, the lust for days spent outdoors is even more desirable.

New research conducted by Farawayfurniture.com has revealed which areas of England have the most species of wildlife. The research was conducted by collating data from NBN atlas’s ‘explore your area’ tool by setting the radius to 2km and selecting the major cities and towns found per region in England. Here are the results for the East of England:

Ipswich came out on top with the highest number of different species of wildlife in the East of England, with a staggering 3,709.
