Wicken Fen

Lode Lane Wicken Ely CB7 5XP

Welcome to the most biodiverse location in Britain. Around 8,000 species are said to inhabit the UK’s only remnant of fenland, and its reeds and fields are home to a prodigious variety of birds and dragonflies. Yet ponies and highland cattle roam too, as will the kids if you hire a GPS unit for a geo-cache treasure hunt. Not only is it the most biodiverse location in the UK but its set to expand further over the coming years. Just one part of The Fens, this area of East Anglia is fast becoming the most significant wetlands site around, hugely important for conservationists as well as a cracking place to visit!
