It was originally an "early 20th century suburban villa garden", the small estate having been built in 1903. The last private owner bequeathed it to the University in 1944. The first garden layout was inspired by Gertrude Jekyll of the Arts and Crafts movement and was further developed over the years.

Sherwood Forest is an ancient area of woodland located in North Nottinghamshire and surrounding the village of Edwinstowe. It covers an area of over 450 acres and it is now a designated National Nature Reserve which is managed by English Nature and is of great ecological importance. Historically this was the home of the legendary outlaw Robin Hood and, thanks largely to this legend, this area now attracts over half a million visitors every year.

The Cathedral Church of St Peter, St Paul and St Andrew was founded in 655 AD and is one of the UK's oldest cathedrals. It has had a chequered history - being burned down and rebuilt in the 12th Century. Sections were destroyed during the Civil War and fire again attacked the building in 2001. Despite all of this, the Cathedral stands tall and proud as the most significant building in the city.
The cathedral is situated in calm and tranquil gardens at the heart of the city of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire and is open every day of the week - from 9 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday; from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturdays and from 7.30 am to 5 pm on Sundays.
