University of Cambridge Botanic Garden
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.
Education and learning
We welcome visits to the Garden from schools and colleges in all seasons and offer imaginative learning opportunities across the curriculum and key stages.
For families, there’s a great choice of activities and events throughout the year to encourage exploration of the natural world. Our community programme reaches out to local groups and residents through a range of projects and initiatives.
The Garden is also committed to training and supporting the next generation of expert horticulturalists. We offer seven horticultural trainees places on the 12 month Cambridge Certificate in Practical Horticulture and Plantsmanship.
