As a student at University of Birmingham my friends and I, like many others, took the opportunity of the lovely weather to visit Winterbourne for free, as you can as a student of the university. It never fails to amaze me how beautiful it is,...More

Having visited many Stately Homes, this was a refreshing change. House was so light and full of wonderful photographs of past residents rather than dark painting of people with the same noses. Gardens were really lovely and as a group we all enjoyed the guided...More

This is a favourite haunt of my partner and I. We enjoy seeing the gardens develop and change throughout the seasons. The gardens are maintained beautifully. The events we have attended have been outstanding.

Hi - can you advise about parking please? I've read on Tripadvisor reviews that there is free Parking, however the website seems to suggest that parking is limited and pay and display either on site or in a nearby multi-storey. We plan to visit on a weekday - could you please clarify where we should park? Thanks
