Lush gardens, lovely smells, busy bees and stunning butterflies. Not very big, surrounded by lovely buildings and the river cam in the distance. Well worth the entrance fee of a couple of quid! Very quiet and tranquil place to be.

Claire's Fellows Gardens are incredibly beautiful, set in a great location by the River Cam, well worth a visit if you are looking to cross over the river via a more interesting route.

Great location. Beautiful. Lovely backdrop of colleges across the river. Sheltered, warm, and sunny location. Plan to arrive early - you need time to find a car park.

This was our first visit to Cambridge, we parked on the main road and wandered over towards Clare College. We came to an entrance asking for £3 entrance fee for Clares college we paid and was told to take the first gate on the left into the gardens.

A lovely garden to have a walk through, it's so quiet and peaceful and charming. Those who are into flowers would have plenty to look at.

These gardens are worth a walk and meditation when you are ruminating thoughts. During summer it flourishes and blossoms, and is really intricate yet balanced, almost wild as all English gardens that are designed and tended to the utmost detail to look natural and bushy.

These gardens are not always open to the puplic but if they are do go in. They are located between the banks of the Cam and Queens Road. You can glimpse them if you are punting on the Cam if they are not open. Im not much of a horticulturist so I cant name all the flowers but the bursts... More

Visited the gardens on a beautiful sunny day. What a treat. Beautifully kept, very relaxing and great to see the river from the opposite bank. We had visitors to Cambridge with us, from the US, who were completely taken with the gardens. We will definitely return.
