Our host for the day will be Tony Arnold, Head Gardener at Newnham College and Chair of the Professional  Gardeners’ Guild.

We start the day at Newnham, where we park our cars and don our walking shoes! Newnham has 18 acres of gardens, including vast tree studded lawns, and it is renowned for its Iris Collection, and beautiful herbaceous borders.

The gardens at Clare have fine specimen trees, clipped yew hedges, a formal sunken pond garden, herbaceous borders, spacious informal lawns leading to the river.

Peterhouse is the oldest of the Cambridge colleges founded in 1284, with 5 acres of tranquil gardens.
