Free Parking at Fen Drayton Lakes

You're invited! Visit us at RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes for National Lottery Open Week between the 9th and 17th March and park for free.

Just put a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard, past or present, in the front windscreen of your vehicle, easy*.

You’re never far from water and wildlife here; it surrounds you wherever you wander. Explore the woods and catch glimpses of secluded bays and pools. You won’t be able to miss majestic Mute Swans on the lakes, but you’ll need to look a little harder to see the many colourful insects. The riverside meadows are alive with nature – reeds rustling, birds warbling, grasshoppers chirping and bees buzzing.

Where there was once just bare sand and gravel, you can now hear the sounds of nature again, and watch Great Crested Grebes performing their astonishing courtship dances, against the backdrop of blue lakes, lush, green meadows and the wooded fringes of the river valley.

A huge variety of wildlife is drawn to the area, including Otters, dragonflies, ducks, swans and geese meaning there's something to see (and hear) all year round at this Cambridge nature reserve.

We look forward to seeing you soon with your National Lottery ticket or scratchcard and let us say #ThanksToYou for supporting us with free parking all week. If you're already a member then why not encourage your friends and family to discover one of your favourite places for free?
