Wicken Fen

Wicken Fen, one of Europe’s most important wetlands, supports an abundance of wildlife. It is the most species rich area of the UK, with over 9300 species of plants, insects, birds and mammals. The raised boardwalk and lush grass droves allow easy access to a lost landscape of flowering meadows, sedge and reed beds, where you can discover rarities such as hen harriers, water voles and bitterns.
The Wicken Fen Vision, an ambitious landscape-scale conservation project, is increasing the areas of land to explore. Our grazing herds of highland cattle and Konik ponies are helping engineer the new landscape and create a diverse range of new habitats.
