Wed 24 July - Wed 7 August: Maintenance works involving scaffolding in front of the cafe and shop windows will be taking place, interrupting the view over Lady Fen. The work will not impact the rest of the site during this time. These works are unavoidable and we apologise in advance for any impact they have on your visit.


Exploring done, your next stop has to be our spectacular Wigeon café for a delicious bite to eat and jaw-dropping views, followed by a spot of retail therapy in our treat-filled shop. Best of all, every penny you spend supports conservation.
