The Cambridge University Botanic Garden was opened in 1846 and now holds a treasure trove of some 8,000 plant species. Designed and executed with great horticultural vision and plantmanship, this heritage landscape features the Rock Garden, displaying alpine plants, the Winter and Autumn Gardens, tropical rainforest and seasonal displays in the Glasshouses, the historic Systematic Beds, the Dry and Scented Gardens and the finest collection of trees in the East of England. The Botanic Garden has been designed for year-round interest and some part of it will be looking wonderful and smelling gorgeous whenever you visit.
