Cambridge University Botanic Garden 2018

Cambridge University Botanic Garden
Plants from all over the world in one great garden, one great day out!
Cambridge University Botanic Garden is set within 40 acres, in the heart of Cambridge. Over 8000 plant species from all over the world provide a stunning backdrop for a leisurely day out.
Opened in 1846 and the vision of John Stevens Henslow, mentor to Charles Darwin, the Botanic Garden holds nine National Collections and the best collection of trees in the region including many iconic and some endangered trees . Other habitat highlights include the Winter Garden, the richly-fragranced Scented Garden, the Dry Garden and the Bee Borders. The Glasshouse Range is home to plants from architectural cacti to alpine beauties and tropical rainforests - providing something of interest for everyone all year round.
The Garden runs an exciting programme of family, school and adults’ activities and events. Garden trails offer an introduction to the natural world for families - children can also borrow our free Young Explorer backpacks. Expert Garden Guides offer free tours at 2.30pm on the first Sunday from February-December, and weekly every Sunday from May-September. The Garden and the Garden Café and Shop are open daily.
