  • The peace and quiet, the wind on my face, the information panels, the walks inside the reserve and the cycle paths (a bit bumpy on my shopping bike!) all wonderful! Returning soon!  more »

  • 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.
