Bicycle Boys Emmanuel College Garden Tour

Emmanuel College

On Saturday 17 September, Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust is hosting a tour of Emmanuel College as part of the national ‘Bicycle Boys’ exhibition.

The Bicycle Boys

In 1928, two young Americans named Loyal Johnson and Sam Brewster arrived in Liverpool, bought bicycles, and cycled about 1,500 miles in order to visit around 80 British gardens. The garden at Emmanuel College is one of those that they visited. This event is being organised by Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust in collaboration with the Royal Horticultural Society and National Gardens Trust as part of the Bicycle Boys exhibition.

Emmanuel College gardens

Beginning at 1.45pm, there will be a tour of the garden led by Brendon Sims, the head gardener at Emmanuel College, followed by tea and cake in the Old Library.

Places are available to book for £5 via the Cambridge Gardens Trust website.
