If you are into history this is a great place to visit gives you a real fee of what life was like in the past, worth travelling to!

I can't really believe the negative reviews I've read. Flag Fen is a window into three-and-a-half thousand years of history, people! The main event is the excavated wooden walkway which is a must-see for history and archaeology enthusiasts.

Being in the neighbourhood we visited Flag Fen. It was well explained how people used to live in the prehistoric times and also the wooden fences who were conserved were very interesting. Unfortunately the museum lacks of any futher interesting objects ( if almost 5000 were found and only 5 exhibited, something must have gone wrong). So when in the... More

Our visit to Flag Fen was very disappointing. Many exhibits had been locked up, even more were broken and in need of repair. In all there was very little to see so our visit lasted no more than 20 minutes!

Been a couple of times and it's one of the more expensive living history / archaeological sites but not one of the best, many others around that are more interesting / informative and simply more fun that are either free or cheaper then FF.
