Restored to its Edwardian Arts and Craft splendour, Winterbourne House is a unique heritage attraction – set within seven acres of beautiful botanic gardens. Only minutes from Birmingham city centre, Winterbourne is a hidden gem – home to beautiful antiques and over 6,000 plant species from around the world. Wander along the woodland walk, stroll through the hazelnut tunnel, cross the 1930’s Japanese Bridge or simply soak up the tranquillity of this perfectly English Edwardian home.

Beautiful gardens and ambiance at this Arts and Crafts House in the centre of Birmingham. Many of the exhibits can be touched, those that are too fragile are clearly marked. Cafe is adequate, but has a limited range of sandwiches and lunches.

You can stay nearby at VenueBirmingham. I'm afraid tripadvisor won't allow web links. Hope this helps!
