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 loved wandering through these gardens during our visit, even 12yo nephew was captivated by their beauty. In August the flowers in bloom created such a colourful picture and despite Cambridge being very busy there was a real air of tranquility.

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

I visited this place on a very hot summers day and it was bliss. It isn't often open to the public so if you get the chance to visit then do pop in.

As a Clare graduate I am clearly biased.... but the gardens are consistently rated the best (sole or joint) in Cambridge. The expanse of lawn leading to the river bank, flanked by borders full of colour, is a particular delight – sit a while there and watch the punts go by.
