Flag Fen

Flag Fen

Re-opening on 26/03/2016, Flag Fen Archaeology Park is home to a unique ancient wooden monument. A kilometre long wooden causeway and platform are perfectly preserved in the wetland. 3300 years ago this was built and used by the Prehistoric fen people as a place of worship and ritual. 60,000 upright timbers and 250,000 horizontal planks are buried under the ground along with many swords and personal items given as offerings to the watery fen.

Visit Flag Fen and you can:

  • See an uncovered section of the ritual causeway and the treasure it holds
  • Explore a reconstructed village from the Bronze Age
  • Discover what life was for our prehistoric ancestors

The site has toilets, a shop, a cafe and picnic areas. Mobility scooters and wheelchairs are available for visitor use.

Free car parking is available on site (no shaded cover) and reserved parking for coaches and people with disabilities. Due to there being livestock on site no dogs are allowed except care dogs.

Please be aware that as this is an archaeological site, the ground is uneven, sensible footwear is recommended.
