Beautiful nature reserve. Lots of information to explain the importance of fen land and it's preservation. Multiple hides with stunning views and the opportunity to see a diverse range of wildlife. Points of interest include a wind powered water pump and a beautiful windmill. The cafe sells delicious scones. Car park is very large. A lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon.
It was a great day out! A box I should have ticked long ago! Would I go again? Yes I would and will. Must try the boat trip!! My ancestors know all about bogs so it was like being at home. Glad I brought my great grandads stilts. They were a great help! I like the occasional moan but sorry I can't find anything to moan about. To get a good feel for Wicken Fen I would suggest that it's definitely a two day, if not three event. All that lovely European money that came our way has paid off. I don't know anyone at Wicken Fen but they all deserve a pat on the back!! A big one.
