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 8,000 plant species from around the world provide a stunning backdrop for a relaxing and informative day out, and a wonderful destination for leisure or special interest group at any time of year.

Opened in 1846, the Botanic Garden holds nine National Collections and the best collection of trees in the region, including many champion and some endangered trees. Other highlights include the Winter Garden, the richly-fragranced Scented Garden, the Dry Garden and the Bee Borders. The new Rising Path opened in 2018, designed to offer a fresh perspective on the Garden's Systematic Beds. 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.

Visitors are also invited to relax in the Garden Café and Terrace and browse in the Garden shop.

The Garden welcomes group visits including photography clubs, horticultural societies, social clubs, U3A and WI groups and more.

Guided tours with an expert guide can also be arranged with one month's notice.

Groups of 10 or more people must book with at least one week's notice.
