Find Accommodation near 'Flag Fen Archaelogical Park & Bronze Age Centre'


Flag Fen is a 20 acre site where visitors can explore the unique history and nature of this area of wetland on the outskirts of the city of Peterborough. 3500 years ago the local people, using an amazing understanding of engineering, built a ceremonial platform and a one mile long ritual causeway across the fens.

The site includes reconstructed bronze and iron age buildings, a roman garden, a droveway, a museum and an exposed section of the causeway housed in an environmentally controlled building.

Although a great deal of effort has been made to provide access for all visitors, due to the historic nature of this large site and the topography of its location, there are some uneven grassed areas and arched bridges. Our researcher used his own self propelling manual wheelchair but found he needed assistance in several areas therefore manual wheelchairs who are able to transfer to one of the centre's buggies might find using one beneficial.
 
The site is open daily between April and October, please check out their own website for current opening times and for special events.
