Cambridge has lost out to arch-rival Oxford in the quest to be named the most expensive UK place outside London to own a garden.
Oxford topped the list, with an average property value per square metre of garden of £1,929, just ahead of Cambridge's almost-as-unaffordable £1,907.
Plumbnation compared the UK’s average house prices with the average sizes of private outdoor space to make their findings.
They then calculated the average cost of a property per square metre of garden space to reveal the most expensive gardens across the country.
Plumbnation said: "Like Oxford, Cambridge is renowned worldwide for both its university and beautiful setting, which explains the high cost of owning a garden in the city."
