Our gardens are one of the best kept secrets in Cambridge. Unlike many Cambridge colleges, Newnham’s gardens are normally open to the public for much of the year.

Please see the Visiting the Gardens page for the current status of our gardens.

The gardens are at the centre of Newnham College and the hearts of students, the Fellows and Staff who live and work here. Few imagine, when they are walking down Sidgwick Avenue or visiting the Sidgwick Site, that behind the Newnham College red brick buildings there are 17 acres of beautiful gardens. Take the virtual tour, or come and visit the gardens in person.

Newnham gardens are managed by the Gardens team and the Gardens Committee. Our College sustainability map explores some of our approach to eco-friendly gardening.
