Flag Fen is famous for being the site of an ancient bronze age causeway, discovered by Time Team’s Francis Pryor. At Flag Fen, you can discover what life was like for our prehistoric ancestors in a reconstructed Bronze Age village. See an uncovered section of the ancient causeway which once led bronze age people to their place of worship. Get a chance to view some exceptionally rare objects, including one of the earliest examples of a man-made wheel, as well as swords, jewellery and personal items which were buried here as part of ritual offerings to the watery ‘fen’. A children’s play area, a cafe, and a flock of free-roaming Soay sheep (plus countless forms of wildlife) also make it a perfect summer’s day out. 

Private tours and school visits are available all year round.

Additional Information

Flag Fen is reopening from 12 April 2021 in line with government guidelines.

This phased reopening of our world-famous bronze age site will initially see the parkland at Flag Fen
welcoming you to explore its prehistoric landscape. The Visitor Centre, gift shop and
restrooms will also be open and limited takeaway food will be on offer.

Please note that the buildings that house our artefacts and exhibitions will remain closed until further guidelines permit their reopening.

New for 2021 is a brand new walking trail, which highlights fun activities for all the
family, including spotting some of our wonderful wildlife. The trail leaflet can be picked up on
entry to Flag Fen or downloaded via a QR code at the attraction.

You will be invited to wash your hands and use hand sanitiser on arrival, and the NHS track & trace scheme is also in place.

Admission to Flag Fen during this phased re-opening is free of charge.
