Cambridge University Botanic Garden

CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY BOTANIC GARDEN.


Occupying 40 acres of level ground, the gardens have been open to the public for 170 years now and were created by Professor John Stevens Henslow, who was Charles Darwin’s mentor. Today, about a third of the flora is housed in glasshouses containing around 3,000 plants from 7 climate zones. A lake, a historic rock garden, 9 national plant collections and many rare trees are part of the unsurpassed heritage of this garden contributing to pioneering work in the fields of plant genetics, physiology and pathology. An apple tree, descendent of the one which inspired Isaac Newton, is planted in one of the lawns. It is one of the most diverse and exciting gardens to visit in the UK as well as one of the least expensive to enter and I highly recommend it to any plant lover.
