Since its opening in 1846, Cambridge University Botanic Garden has been an inspiration for gardeners, an exciting introduction to the natural world for families and a refreshing oasis for all visitors. The Garden has plants from all over the world displayed in a 40 acre oasis of gardens and glasshouses.
This heritage-listed Garden has been designed for both year-round interest and seasonal inspiration so, whenever you visit, you will find plants to intrigue and enchant.
The original Botanic Garden of Cambridge University was founded in 1762 in the centre of the City, now known as the New Museums Site. The existence of today's much larger Botanic Garden, occupying a 40 acre site between Hills Road and Trumpington Road, is due to John Stevens Henslow, the Professor of Botany at Cambridge from 1825-1861.
