About

Only minutes from Birmingham city centre, Winterbourne is one of the best surviving examples of an Edwardian Arts and Crafts suburban villa garden.

Offering colour and interest throughout the year, the seven acre Grade II listed garden is home to a beautiful walled garden, striking colour themed borders, original sandstone rock garden and stream side planting.

Inside, exhibition rooms on two floors tell the history of the house and its owners.

The garden also displays plants from around the globe with collections of plants from China, North and South America and the alpine areas of the world. There is a programme of public garden events running throughout the year including open days, special interest tours, local heritage days and music concerts . Visitors can enjoy lunch or refreshments in the terrace tea room.
