Notice: Part closure of Nature Trail: Due to recent heavy rain and to prevent damage to a fragile habitat, a section of the Nature Trail along Spinney Bank is currently closed. Access to the three wildlife hides on the trail remains open. Please speak to the staff in the Visitor Centre if you would like details of the closure or alternative routes.
The National Trust's oldest nature reserve, and England's most famous fen
Wicken Fen, one of Europe's most important wetlands, supports an abundance of wildlife. There are more than 8,500 species, including a spectacular array of plants, birds and dragonflies.
The raised boardwalk and lush grass droves allow easy access to a lost landscape of flowering meadows, sedge and reedbeds, where you can encounter rarities such as hen harriers, water voles and bitterns.
Wicken Fen Vision, an ambitious landscape-scale conservation project, is opening up new areas of land to explore. Our grazing herds of Highland cattle and Konik ponies are helping to create a diverse range of new habitats.
