“Tranquil and beautiful ”

Ranked #36 of 170 things to do in Cambridge
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 August 2016 via mobile

We loved wandering through these gardens during our visit, even 12yo nephew was captivated by their beauty. In August the flowers in bloom created such a colourful picture and despite Cambridge being very busy there was a real air of tranquility.

We walked through the gardens on our way over to see King's College and they are just gorgeous. It incorporates both expansive lawn areas with borders as wells as more intimate settings. I couldn't get over some of the vivid colors I saw in the delphiniums and clematis. The layout and condition of every bed was just so impressive. The best part is that it is totally free to enjoy!

I visited this place on a very hot summers day and it was bliss. It isn't often open to the public so if you get the chance to visit then do pop in.

The most amazing garden open free to the public. Sea of tranquillity. Absolutely beautiful. Hidden gem.

As a Clare graduate I am clearly biased.... but the gardens are consistently rated the best (sole or joint) in Cambridge. The expanse of lawn leading to the river bank, flanked by borders full of colour, is a particular delight – sit a while there and watch the punts go by. But there are also several small areas to explore, one with a pond.
