Day out

Day Out: Cambridge Botanical Gardens

Hello and Welcome back! I recently had a week off work and decided to go back to my home town St Ives near Cambridge. One of my earliest posts was about St Ives. Which you can check out here.

Anyway back to my this post. As I arrived by train into Cambridge I decided to go the Botanical Gardens as it was surprisingly close to the station. It has been several years since I last visited. It was £6 to go in which isn’t bad. You were also given a map to help you navigate the gardens.

So today I’m going to share with you what I discovered in the gardens. It was a beautiful autumnal day. Not to hot and not to cold with lots of orange and red leaves.

Within the gardens were a nice cafe which I can imagine would be lovely to stop in for a cuppa. I decided to keep on walking though and discovered this field of pretty purple flowers which broke up the green and orange of the leaves.

They even had a garden called the autumnal gardens. Though to be fair at this time of year all the garden is autumnal!

Right in the centre of the garden was a stunning waterfall.

Just around the corner was a lake which was so peaceful to sit by.

Of course, no botanical garden is complete without a giant green house filled with tropical plants.

As I continued to walk I discovered an autumnal stream!

Further along was a garden which is filled with flowers in the summer. There was a few flowers though.

So that was my experience at the Cambridge Botanical Gardens. It was so peaceful which was surprising considering how close it was to the city centre! I would definitely love to visit in a different season to see how it changes through out the year.

Have you been to the Cambridge Botanical Garden? If not where is your favourite place to go to get back to nature?
