Discover the Great Fen!

In all weather and seasons, the Great Fen is a great place to visit. Nature Reserves and the restored landscapes provide a perfect environment for a variety of wildlife species. A network of extensive footpaths and adventure trails offer walks for all abilities, from gentle strolls round Ramsey Heights to exploring the lowest point in Great Britain and discovering the historic Holme Fen posts.  

Why not visit at night? The Great Fen has two designated 'Milky Way' sites, offering a clear, uninterrupted view of the milky way due to low levels of light pollution.
