Walk up to the Gothic Folly at Wimpole for some great views across the lake and back towards the Hall. Whilst a walk between Wicken Fen and Anglesey Abbey, will enable you to discover the beauty of the Cambridgeshire fens and enjoy nature's spectacles with the changing of the seasons.
Cycling is a great way to explore Wicken Fen, local villages or the historic cities of Cambridge or Ely - and the best bit there's not a hill in sight. Choose from easy routes like the Lodes Way linking Wicken Fen to Anglesey Abbey, or the Upware Loop for those feeling more adventourous.
Enjoy running? Then you'll love parkrun. A free, timed 5km run which takes place every Saturday at Wimpole. Whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.
The Winter Garden at Anglesey Abbey was designed to look its best in the winter months. At a time of year when colour is often in short supply, a walk through the garden here means you can enjoy seasonal colour, scent and interesting planting combinations. The birch grove always stops visitors in their tracks.
Wicken Fen needs your support. With your help we will be able to build a bridge that will link areas of the Fen, allowing the herds of Konik ponies and cattle to range over a wider area, creating new habitats for precious wildlife.
