Open Cambridge - Garden and estate open day

Event Location

Madingley Hall

Event Summary

Especially for Open Cambridge, and to mark the 70th anniversary of the University of Cambridge’s purchase of Madingley Hall, we are opening up the Hall, Gardens and parts of the Estate to the public.

Explore the eight-acre garden, the Capability Brown landscape, Madingley village, the surrounding woodland – including the 800 Wood, planted for the University’s 800th anniversary in 2009 – and the Cambridge American Cemetery (ABMC), which was bequeathed in the 1940s.

Local experts – including Estate surveyors, members of the ABMC, and the Madingley Hall garden team – will be on hand to guide and assist.

After you’ve explored the Estate, why not revive and refresh at our Local Food Fair at Madingley Hall? Indulge yourself with samples from the pop-up farmers’ market.
