Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve details...

Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve and is the National Trust’s oldest nature reserve, and England’s most famous fen.

It has a vast array of wildlife, including plants, birds and dragonflies.

Head off on the raised boardwalk, enjoy a landscape of flowering meadows, sedge and reedbeds, and encounter rarities such as hen harriers, water voles and bitterns.

There are often lovely events for children, and they can also hire bikes on-site.

When little tummies get hungry visit the café, with inside and outside seating.
