Things to see & do
Discover one of the last remnants of un-drained fenland in lowland Britain.
Explore the fen on the Boardwalk Trail or take the longer Nature Trail.

Don't rush home - stay and watch our amazing fenland sunsets.
The mere & reed-beds
Spy on native and migrant wildfowl from four hides overlooking the mere and wet scrapes.
In autumn look for the secretive bittern stalking the waters edge, bearded tits flitting through the reeds and cormorants sitting in the trees around the mere.
Head to Baker's Fen to see Wicken's free roaming herds of konik ponies and highland cattle.
In autumn and winter the wet grasslands are alive with the sight and sound of lapwings, as well as large flocks of wigeon and teal escaping the harsh Northern European winter.
Look out for barn and short eared owls quartering for a tasty vole or shrew.
Duck your head as you step into historic Fen Cottage.
The cottage is one of the last surviving buildings of a once thriving hamlet whose residents lived and worked on the fen.

Peer inside our recreation of a typical 1930s Fenman's workshop.
