I wandered into the gardens on a visit to Cambridge last week on a whim. The college is not on the main drag so this probably means that a lot of tourists miss out on the beautiful gardens and chatting to the friendly and informative garden staff.

The gardens surround the whole college. No space is unplanted with beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees!

So many of the colleges are terribly formal and seem to be going through the motions. Wolfson seems to be different, they are really informal, fun and vivacious.

If you see a gardener, stop for a chat. I spoke to two of them and they were very friendly, informative and happy! I think I would be too.

Thanks for a lovely couple of hours.

ps, take some sandwiches and have a mini picnic on one of lawns if it's sunny :-)

Thank onionbag124

I am a member of a private fly fishing syndicate and thankfully so are two fellows of the college.
As a result we have an annual dinner in the college and Wow is this something special.
The food is superb and so is the venue, wines are perfectly matched to the courses and on this years menu was a souffle as the starter which was one of finest things that I have ever eaten!!
The waiters and waitresses are also very well trained and make the evening special. I cannot praise the whole experience enough and every year look forward to next event!!! Bravo!!!

The College is worth a visit if happen to be at the West-side of Cambridge. The people are friendly, the gardens are pretty (especially around the library area), and the bar drinks are cheap! :)
