Wilburton is a small village of just over 1,000 inhabitants, situated in Cambridgeshire, England. The village is on a ridge between Stretham and Haddenham.

While nominally an agricultural village, many of the inhabitants work in Cambridge, Ely or London.

For the last few hundred years, the Pell family were the prominent local landowners, sponsoring the somewhat optimistic Ely to Wilburton railway in the late 1800s.

There is St.Peter's Church, parts of which date from the 13th century.

There is a fine Elizabethan manor house, a shop, a garden centre and a pub, the King's Head.

The village is known for its fireworks display around Guy Fawkes night and its beer festival in the summer. In 2005 it also held its first spring beer festival.
