Tulips at Fitzwilliam College

An update from the Fitz gardens

Our warmest thanks to graduate student Bluebell Drummond, who is living at Fitzwilliam during the lockdown period in the United Kingdom.

This weekend we would have celebrated the National Garden Scheme at Fitzwilliam. One of the great pleasures of the scheme is being able to see gardens which are usually closed to the public. Inspired by this, we hope you enjoy these peeks into other beautiful gardens around Cambridge.

Relax with Wellness Wanders in the Cambridge University Botanic Garden

Visit Wolfson College with their head gardener Phil for an expertly guided tour.

You can follow what's growing at Trinity Hall's gardens journal.

Madingley Hall's acres of beautiful grounds were originally laid out by Capability Brown, and remain a vision to behold today.

You can take a photo tour of Newnhams gardens here.

See the first video of the Fitzwilliam gardens at the end of March.

We know how much the beautiful Fitzwilliam gardens mean to our community. It's not possible to visit them at the moment, but we hope this glimpse lifts your spirits.
