Quite well layed out, nice walk round. Interesting to read about the history of the fens and to picture it in the modern world. Nice coffee

This was an excellent couple of hours with a very informative guide. I was left feeling I could see the ancient people and had such an exciting time. I would recommend this venue to anyone who likes history...particularly our ancient history 😊

As keen followers of Time Team, and having heard so much about Flag Fen decided to visit for a few hours. Very disappointed! The site looked tired and neglected, information boards covered in bird muck - but nothing that a bowl of water wouldn't have...More

This is a fascinating place with so much information about the history of the fens. For me, the high point was the preserved timber posts which are 3,300 years old. They are quite possibly the oldest artefacts I have ever seen and it is so...More

I moved round the corner to this place five months ago and finally visited today. What an amazing experience. Well signposted and good displays explaining the site and exhibits on display. The main part, the Preservation Hall displaying the wooden causeway posts 3300 years old...More

The most interesting part of today's visit was to see the causeway exposed and being kept continually wetted in one display. But also, and equally interesting, was to see the dug out boats from Must Farm being treated to prevent them from rotting-Mary Rose style....More

Interesting place to visit. Saw the boats that they found at marsh farm and have put them sort of on display! Many of them wrapped in bubble wrap.

I’m so pleased to have heard about this place, such an interesting and forgotten part of Britain’s culture. Informative and very child friendly. Big plus - the ancient waterlogged timbers that still remain from the Causeway that the Celts built which was almost entirely destroyed...More
