Private Tour of St Catherine’s College Gardens (SOLD OUT)

st catherines college garden

This is a private visit to St Catherine’s College, built in 1962 by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. His vision was to build an entirely modern solution to the challenge of creating an integrated environment which would be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. The skeleton of Arne Jacobsen’s original garden design is largely unaltered and is set out as a series of spaces or rooms defined by yew hedges, brick walls and covered walkways which connect the strong lines of the buildings. The garden’s abiding strengths are in its architectural qualities set against simple plantings of carefully chosen trees and shrubs. It is planned to be at its best in June and October and Friends will have a guided tour by the Head Gardener, Paul Shapter. The visit will end with tea and cakes.
