Flag Fen is the site of a 3,500 year old ritual causeway and ceremonial platform. Made from wood it contains 60,000 upright timbers and has yielded one of the best collections of Bronze Age Celtic swords, jewellery and tools in the country. A visit to the 20 acre site of Flag Fen is an exploration of history and nature, with reconstructive archaeology and recreated habitats for rare plants such as Fen Ragwort. Explore our reconstructed Bronze Age roundhouse and landscape with free volunteer-led guided tours. Marvel at the oldest wheel in England, the earliest Celtic art and the bronze swords and tools of our ancestors Experiment with have-a-go activities from ancient times. Experience the tranquility and diversity of the park with a lakeside walk and an abundance of wildlife including over 50 species of birds and dragonflies.
