A virtual tour of the gardens at Murray Edwards College
Friday 24 September 2021 to Tuesday 28 September 2021
The gardens of Murray Edwards College span 14 acres and were recently included in the Good Garden Guide. We encourage our students to enjoy the gardens and unlike most colleges, students are welcome to walk on the grass and pick flowers and herbs to use. The College is built on the grounds of The Orchard, previously owned by Norah Barlow, granddaughter of Charles Darwin, who was herself a distinguished plantswoman. Dame Rosemary Murray, New Hall's first president, planned and planted the gardens around the current College buildings.
This session has been pre-recorded and will be available for the duration of the Alumni Festival, there is no booking required. The pre-recorded video will be available here from Friday 24 September at 9am.
