‘Capability’ Brown Trails

Follow Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown walking trails around Cambridgeshire with a series of walks taking in some of his most famous landscapes at Wimpole Hall, the Cambridge ‘Backs’, and Madingley Hall, together with his manor house and monument at Fenstanton.  Please note that at certain times of the year the colleges close off part of the ‘Backs’, and the Madingley gardens are occasionally closed for special events, so do check before setting out, especially if you are travelling from a distance.

Call Cambridge Visitor Information Centre on 01223 791500 for college information.
