University Botanic Garden, Cambridge

If the idea of casually strolling around in nature appeals, then this is one of the Cambridge attractions to see. The gardens are within easy reach of the city’s main train station and attract 20,000 visitors each year. For gardening enthusiasts, families, schools and tourists, the gardens offer an introduction to botanical research and horticultural inspiration.

The botanical gardens can be visited any time of year and provide several seasonal trails. Spend a leisurely day exploring the extensive grounds and the glasshouses. They cover 40 acres and boast over 8,000 species of plants from around the world. You will also catch glimpses of the local wildlife including birds, insects and reptiles.

It's a great place for children to learn interesting scientific facts. They'll enjoy the colours and garden fragrances. Or you can just relax in the café in the middle of the gardens. It serves soups, sandwiches and snacks, plus cakes from a local Italian patisserie. Vegan and gluten-free options are available too. King's College Chapel, Fitzwilliam Museum and most other Cambridge sights are within walking distance.
