I have to say I was very surprised to discover this beautiful place so close to the city center. I was very impressed with the garden, good variety of flowers and plants from all over the world. A nice place for romantic walks. Despite it is October I still enjoyed the nice weather and some flowers were still blooming. I'll... More

I cant believe lived so close to this venue and not visited before. Beautiful gardens, lovely house and a really nice coffee shop with seating on the terrace. A very nice afternoon tea which is good value. Well worth a visit.

This Edwardian house in the centre of Birmingham is a gem and the gardens are lovely to wander around with a huge variety of plants from all over the world. The house is mostly wheelchair accessible and they even have a mobility scooter free of charge for visitors to explore the gardens. It is the former home of the Nettlefold... More

Ended up here when the employees of Birmingham Council were too lazy to advise that Aston Hall (our initial destination) was closed for the day! What a stroke of luck! Winterbourne House provided three good reasons to visit: The gardens - even in autumn provided interest and spectacle The house - of it's time, well presented and with the advantage... More

I was taken here as a surprise. I was amazed by the content of the house and learning how the Winterbourne family lived. Everything was so beautiful and vintage Best of all was view of the garden and the water features. Would definitely recommend

Winterbourne House has a really interesting garden with a great variety of content. It has a newly improved orchid house, good cacti displays, alpine plants and greenhouse. The gardens are tranquil and have many a surprise when you turn around corners. Don't miss the access to the lake (by permission of the Edgbaston golf club) with its Heronry and many... More

After visiting the Barber Institute which is close by we then went to Winterbourne House and Garden, had lunch and then went round the house and Garden. The Cacti greenhouse was particularly interesting. Well worth a visit.

Fascinating family history in an Arts and Crafts house with lots of William Morris fabrics and wallpapers. Superb and very varied gardens, with Japenese bridge, ponds, streams and link to woodland and very large pool. Cafe has good choice of jacket potatoes, soups, sandwiches and daily special. Home made cakes and trad afternoon tea as well. Great cuppa, lovely friendly... More

What a hidden gem not far from Birmingham city centre. Beautifully kept gardens, interesting house, tea rooms, what more could you want? Garden is mainly on the level with lots of benches for a sit down. A walk through the woods to Edgaston Pool is worth it. Can see us visiting each season of the year to enjoy the changes.
