We visited here as part of our pony club camp at a local riding school. We came to see the wild horses and were amazed at how friendly they were! Our guides were very knowledgable but also health and safety conscious (obviously a must with other people's children in your care). They taught the children a bit about the behaviour... 更多
We actually live in Wicken so have the privilege of walking round this Fen regularly. It is beautiful in all seasons. The part you pay to enter is an area crisscrossed with boardwalks. Children love this when the reeds are high - it's like another world. Also included in the ticket price is a visit the very quaint Fenman's cottage... 更多
I'm hesitant in writing this review, as in Wicken fen being a local nature reserve of the old Fens is a brilliant place to go and walk (with our dog this time), Watch and see nature without to many people, and that's the snag, it's never "busy" and that's being perhaps selfish as it needs more people to visit to... 更多
Great day out , plenty to see and explore boys loved being there will visit again . Lovely calm tranquil place for all ages . You can see lots of wildlife and flowers just a relaxing easy day

Needed to get away from work/home headed here. I went on a weekday not so busy. Car is pricy but I'm a National Trust member so it's free. Wear good quality out boots/shoes as it can be boggy in places. Restaurant could be better.
After a break of a few years we've visited Wicken Fen a couple of times. In February we did a quick walk round the boardwalk at the end of the day and had great views of marsh harriers and hen harriers - the reason for that visit. Yesterday we spent a full day there, walked two of the trails, took... 更多
