Well worth a visit during October. The trees were beautiful this time of year with all the reds and yellow leaves. Very autumnal. It took an hour and half to walk around the whole place. Its worth the money. We paid standard adult price to get in. There is a cafe there reasonably priced. There are toilets around. Friendly staff at the gate and in the shop.

The flowers on the cacti were blooming very beautiful. The walks around the Gardens are very well laid out . Plants are labeled in most places. Lovely flowers and trees,, great map for layout. There is historical information at various points. It was quite beautiful and such a lovely day. The restaurant was busy but great. I had a wrap, which was really nice, cake and coffee which were also excellent. Then bought plants, herbs in the shop and a few other things. I had a wonderful day out and will definitely go again when next I visit my daughter and family. Well worth visiting.

A lovely botanical garden in the centre of Cambridge. There is so much to see even in the winter, I'm looking forward to returning during the summer months. A short walk from Cambridge railway station. The winter garden is really beautiful and scented, a real lift during the dull day's. Lot's of places to sit and relax. We went to see the snowdrops, you can't believe that there are so many varieties.

I absolutely loved this place! Whether you love plants and are interested in exploring them in a lot of detail or you're looking for a relaxing spot to feel connected with nature and rest for a little bit, this is the perfect place! Not too pricey and so much to see! I loved the green house but every bit of the gardens have many different varieties of plants to explore and enjoy. Totally worth a visit.

The Cambridge botanical gardens are absolutely beautiful. You can tell they are well loved and maintained, the grounds are well looked after and you could truly spend a whole day here just roaming the gardens. I particularly loved the cacti section of the massive greenhouse, so unique and such a great vibe to the whole area.
