The college stretches over seven acres of gardens. They include a number of botanically important trees as well as shrubs, borders and colourful seasonal planting.
The garden comprises a series of courts, each with a different style of planting.
The Darwin garden displays a selection of plants that Charles Darwin (alumni of the College) would have encountered during his voyage on the HMS Beagle. It also showcases a bronze sculpture of Darwin by Anthony Smith.
This is a rare opportunity to visit the Fellows’ Garden, which is not normally open to the public. It has much late summer colour and is a welcome sanctuary in the middle of the city.
British Red Cross visitors will also be able to explore the rest of the college gardens.
