Overview
More
Fifteen acres of glorious landscaped gardens with over 7000 plants, shrubs and trees - and a new Butterfly House. Close to Birmingham city centre, this hidden tranquil setting also has four glasshouses taking the visitor from the hot steamy heat of the Tropical rainforest with its rich vegetation, through to the Sub-Tropical House with its stunning palms and tree ferns. The visitor moves through to the Mediterranean House, with its citrus plants and bright conservatory-type blooms - and finally to the stark contrast of the Arid House with desert climate and stunning cacti.

£7.50 decent value for a couple of hours. Japanese gardens very restful. Nice views from the tea rooms. Also a shop where plants can be bought. Gardens bigger than expected from the road. Was surprised there was an aviary too.

Who knew that this place existed near the centre of Birmingham. We walked there, but it has parking if you need it. This is a dry weather visit and well worth it. The glass houses have plants that you would expect to see, and lots...More

A surprise early Christmas present, being taken to see the Illuminations on Christmas Eve. Magic! Must go in the summer to see the flowers and take a camera. The refreshments around the grounds weren't cheap, but the lights were spot on.
