A 40-acre oasis of beautiful gardens

Cambridge University Botanic Gardens

Founded in 1846 by Professor John Henslow, mentor to Charles Darwin, this heritage-listed Botanic Garden is a treasure trove of over 8,000 plant species, including nine National Collections and a fine arboretum. Highlights include the Winter Garden, buzzing Bee Borders, Rock Garden, Scented Garden and a water-wise Dry Garden. The Glasshouse Range of architectural cactus, alpines and tropical rainforests is perfect for a cold day.
