Directions: Flag Fen can be accessed by bicycle and foot via the Green Wheel (approximately 5 miles or 1.5 hours from Peterborough Railway and Bus Station on foot and 45 minutes by bicycle). Unfortunately, there is no bus route to Flag Fen. Taxis from the City Centre cost approximately £8 each way. By car Flag Fen can be accessed from Junction 5 of the A1139 or via the B1040 from Whittlesey or Thorney, turning at the Dog in the Doublet Pub. Brown signs direct travellers from Peterborough but not from Whittlesey or Thorney.
