One of my favourite places to go in Cambridge is the University Botanic Gardens. These are located just outside the city centre but you would hardly know that you were in a built up area as these gardens as so peaceful and interesting. I also went on one of my first dates with my now husband here so it does hold really special memories for me.

The Cambridge University Botanic Garden can be found close to Cambridge City centre; initially it comes as something of a surprise to find a peaceful 40 acre garden only a few minutes walk from the railway station. The Garden has an impressive collection of thousands of plant species in a fantastic setting, including a Scented Garden, Lake, a number of Glasshouses, and a mature Woodland Walk.

During the Summer the Herbaceous Borders, Dry ... Read the complete review
