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 you can learn 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. 

Flag Fen is open to the public seasonally from early April to the end of September. Please call ahead to avoid disappointment. Private tours and school visits are available all year round.
