Wicken Fen - National Trust

Lode Lane, Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB7 5XP

Wicken Fen nature reserve is the National Trust’s oldest. By day the location offers boardwalk access to explore the diverse animal and plant life. By night the area, being distant enough from nearby Cambridge to escape the worst effects of light pollution, offers an opportunity to explore the skies above with events organised in collaboration with the Cambridge Astronomical Society.


Wicken Fen - National Trust is a private location and is only accessible out of normal hours for stargazing by prior arrangement or when public events are scheduled.
