Crazy Cone Caper Self-Led Trail

Wed 1 December 2021 - Mon 28 February

Cambridge University Botanic Garden

Something mysterious been happening to the pine cones at the Botanic Garden – they’ve been nibbled and the seeds are missing! To join in with this whodunit mystery simply pick up a free trail on your way into the Garden and start your investigation. You will discover cool cones from all around the world, find facts and solve puzzles.

Have you got what it takes to solve the Crazy Cone Caper?

NB: The Crazy Cone Caper family trail has run at the Garden before, but this year a new criminal is at work so even if you have taken part before, you can have another go to find out the thief. Pick up the trail at the Ticket Office throughout December, January and February.

Cost: Free with normal Garden admission. Please note, children must be accompanied at all times. Standard admission charges apply for accompanying adults. Children under 16 years free.
