In December 2023, Cambridge University Botanic Garden will be holding its first ever winter lights trail – Cambridge Botanic Lights.

Bringing the Garden to life after dark with stunning displays and artistic interventions, the lights will highlight some of the Garden’s most beloved features (such as the Fountain, Lake and Glasshouse Range) and create beautiful experiences around the rest of the landscape.

Visitors will take a stroll around an enchanted Garden, through magical scenes that enhance the natural landscape.

Tickets are available to purchase here.

"This exciting new experience will be a wonderful way for all the family to explore the Garden after dark, a fun night out with friends and a beautiful, new romantic experience in the city centre." - CUBG Director, Professor Beverley Glover.

Their Café will be on the route with warm offerings, as well as hot drinks and light bites available halfway round to revive spirits and warm up any chilly fingers!
