Cambridge University Botanic Garden (Cambridge)

The Cambridge University Botanic Garden is an excellent garden at Cambridge.

It is situated in Brookside, and is of course owned by the University of Cambridge.

It was opened in 1846 by John Henslow, who was the teacher and mentor of the young Charles Darwin.

There are over 8000 plant species in a beautiful landscape, with important collections including tulips, geraniums and lavenders, and an arboretum said to be the best in the East of England.

The Glasshouses are planted with tropical plants, while there is a Rock Garden with delicate alpines, and Water Gardens.
