Pollen Hotspots in Cambidge

Although it’s famous for its gorgeous university buildings, the city is a haven when it comes to green spaces, so the Cambridge pollen count can skyrocket. The city has over 90 parks and playgrounds perfectly positioned for picnics, cycling, long walks and… hay fever.

Cambridgeshire County Council’s Farms Estate is the largest in England and Wales at 33,000 acres – therefore, the area surrounding the city is largely made up of farmland. The county has also been found to be a hotspot for nettle and mugwort, which can both trigger hay fever symptoms.

In the city itself, pollen levels are usually highest in parks such as Cambridge University Botanic Garden, Parker’s Piece and Milton Country Park, which can be found on its outskirts.
