Enjoy the Great Fen, dine out in Ramsey and taste Fenland life at Ramsey Rural Museum and the Walled Garden.
Breathe in the Fenland landscape
The untamed fens with abundant wildlife used to stretch hundreds of miles across the east of England, before being drained for farming. The Great Fen is an ambitious 50 year project to restore the land to its original wild state. It is a fascinating and inspiring place to visit and a haven for rare birds, otters, wildflowers, deer, dragonflies and butterflies.
Rest and refuel in rustic Ramsey
Head to Ramsey for a meal and meander. Its historical town centre is a treasure trove of independent eateries. Whether your dream Sunday is a blow out Sunday roast or something spicier at the Indian or Chinese restaurants, you’ll find a charming place for a well deserved break.
Reminisce at Ramsey Rural Museum
Ramsey’s excellent museum is a fascinating insight into rural living over the last 200 years. It is packed with variety – from a complete cobbler’s shop to a reconstructed, two-room Fenland cottage. Discover Ramsey Abbey Walled Kitchen Garden, hidden for decades by thorny brambles and now restored. Finish off your day with tea and slice of cake at the museum café.
