Mystery History Family Trail at Cambridge University Botanic Garden, U.K.

Today we visited Cambridge University Botanic Garden. What a coincidence that it was celebrating its 175th anniversary! There was various events including live music, flowers stalls, food and drink trucks. It was also a coincidence that it was the first day they launched the Mystery History Family Trail ! All of these made our visit extra special.

The Mystery History Family Trail is a great way to explore the Garden especially for us who has never been here before. We picked up the free map at the entrance and started our stroll.

J was very excited to find his first stop.

We followed the map and looked for another stop.

I found some beautiful flowers.

I love how J takes time to observe.

He found another one.

I love these dreamy sceneries.

We heard music and some tooting noise nearby, it was getting closer and closer so it was not from the concert in the grass area. Later we found out it was this:

We then went to see the greenhouse. Due to covid they are limiting the number of people inside the greenhouse, so we had to queue up for quite a while. There were a lot of interesting plants inside.

After the greenhouse, we went to explore more and found this lovely area. I believe it is a garden school for teaching kids.

All pictures were taken with my Canon 5D.

Facilities:

  • Toilets were dirty near closing time (it was the 175th celebration on the day we went so they were many visitors)
  • There is no parking at the Botanic Garden. We parked our car at Grand Arcade Car Park (because we planned to have dinner in the City Centre). You can find out more on how to get to the Garden by visiting this direct link https://www.botanic.cam.ac.uk/visit-us/how-to-get-here/
