Bicycle Boys Emmanuel College Garden Tour

Emmanuel College

On Saturday 17 September The Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust is hosting a tour of Emmanuel college as part of their Bicycle Boys exhibition. Two young Americans named Loyal Johnson and Sam Brewster arrived in Liverpool, bought bicycles, and cycled about 1500 miles in order to visit around 80 British gardens. The garden at Emmanuel College is one of the ones that they visited in 1928. 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 at Emmanuel college.

Starting from Emmanuel College at 1:45 there will be a tour of the garden by Brendon Sims the head gardener followed by tea and cake in the Old Library afterwards. Places are available to book for £5 via the Cambridge Garden Trust (link below).
