Fenland is a local government district in Cambridgeshire, England. Its council is based in March, and covers the neighbouring market towns of Chatteris, Whittlesey, and Wisbech (often called the "capital of the fens"). The district covers around 500 square kilometers of mostly agricultural land in the extremely flat Fens.

It was formed in April 1, 1974, with the merger of the Borough of Wisbech, Chatteris Urban District, March Urban District, Whittlesey Urban District, North Witchford Urban District and Wisbech Rural District.
