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

An interesting place to visit if you want to see real history and how it is being conserved. We were there for about 2 hours.

Have lived in Lincolnshire for over 40 years and never knew about Flag Fen. Well worth a visit to learn about our Bronze Age ancestors and see some amazing artefacts from 3,300 years ago. Reasonable entry fee, free tour, good cafe and toilets. Thoroughly recommended.

We visited on a lovely, sunny added quiet Friday afternoon. Reasonable entry fee. Limited facilities, but that didn't bother us at all. We had about an hour and a half wandering around the site - more interesting for the adults, but not too far between...More
