Welcome to the Great Fen

The Great Fen is a vast fenland landscape between Peterborough and Huntingdon with a dramatic and fascinating history. It is home to two National Nature Reserves, protected for their unique habitat and the varied wildlife they support.

The area is currently benefiting from one of the largest restoration projects of its type in Europe and the landscape is being restored and transformed for the benefit both of wildlife and of people. 

The Great Fen has a variety of fantastic facilities, creating the perfect environment for regular events and clubs.
