My favourite garden in Cambridge

Beautiful in all seasons, but particularly so in early autumn when dahlias are in bloom. Great view of the river and colleges.

We were eating in Clare College and attended a pre-dinner drinks function in the Clare Fellows' Garden. The setting was perfect for a warm evening event, the gardens are well kept and the setting and location were perfect. The staff were attentive and not intrusive

We walked through the gardens on our way over to see King's College and they are just gorgeous. It incorporates both expansive lawn areas with borders as wells as more intimate settings. I couldn't get over some of the vivid colors I saw in the delphiniums and clematis. The layout and condition of every bed was just so impressive. The... More

As a Clare graduate I am clearly biased.... but the gardens are consistently rated the best (sole or joint) in Cambridge.
