Access to Wicken Fen this Easter

Visitors on an insect hunt at Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve, Cambridgeshire.

We're open everyday over the Easter Holidays. Here's some useful travel advice for your journey to Wicken Fen.

Due to a burst watermain a section of the A1123 from Stretham to Wicken is closed, and likely to remain so for the duration of the Easter Bank holiday weekend.

If travelling from a Northerly direction to Wicken Fen, we suggest you take the A142 Ely by-pass South towards Newmarket. At the Downfields roundabout take the A1123 towards Wicken. Ignore the 'Road Closed' & 'Follow Diversion' signs, as the road is not closed until after the turn-off to Wicken Fen.

If travelling from a Southerly direction (Burwell or Newmarket) turn off the A142 at the Downfields roundabout and follow the A1123 to Wicken. Ignore the Road Closed' or 'Follow Diversion' signs, as the road is not closed until after the turn-off to Wicken Fen.
