At the Cambridge University Botanic Garden you can discover plants from all over the world in 40 acres of beautiful gardens and glasshouses.

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 our visitors.

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 Garden's plant collection of over 8000 species is displayed over its 40 acre site in a seamless patchwork of gardens and plantings that together compose a stunning landscape.

The Glasshouse Range flanks the north side of the Main Lawn, and is full of year-round interest - from the daintiest alpine to exotic tropical climbers - and is a real refuge on a cold day. The Range has been transformed in the last five years through a major restoration and replanting programme that has seen the glasshouse plants, all requiring some protection from the Cambridge climate, re-presented to reveal the drama of plant diversity and explore how plants have evolved to survive in key environments such as icy mountains and oceanic islands, desert and jungle.
