Cambridge University Botanic Garden is a 40 acre, Grade II* listed heritage garden in the centre of Cambridge. It is the most visited university botanic garden in the UK, welcoming over 275,000 visitors annually. The Garden supports University teaching and research while also being a place of enjoyment and inspiration to visitors of all ages.

The Garden maintains the University’s collection of over 8,000 plant species from all around the world, including one of the region’s finest collections of trees, all set across beautifully designed and landscaped gardens and glasshouses. Highlights include striking seasonal colour in the Winter and Autumn Gardens; the richly fragranced Scented Garden; colourful Bee Borders; a relaxing Woodland Garden and Lake. Alpine and tropical plants in the Glasshouse Range are also perfect for a cold day’s visit.

The Garden offers year-round inspiration for gardeners and is an exciting introduction to the natural world for families. A number of events are held throughout the year as well as adult courses and workshops.  See website for details.

Visitors are invited to relax in the Garden Café and Terrace and enjoy the Botanic Garden Shop.
