I come here often to wonder around and daydream. Very nice. I would advise staff to be stricter on the parking though, as students use the car park while they are at university, meaning paying visitors have to find elsewhere to park if full.

Very good for any open air theatre event. A sweet garden to visit on one of these occasions. I would say 2 hours would do it on a specific visit

University of Birmingham students get free entry, and prices for other visitors are reasonable. Lovely to visit on a sunny day. Great place to sunbathe, study or simply get some peace and quiet. Winterbourne House itself is also worth a visit - it gives you a good insight into the history of Edgbaston.

I emailed before visiting to see if the gardens were wheel chair friendly .................................. and was told that they were................... well yes they are if you are content to spend only fifteen minutes in the gardens !!! One area of pathway is ok, but the rest are grit and pebble and extremely difficult to push a wheel chair over. was... More

I am sorry to hear that you experienced a disappointing visit. We have made several changes over the last few years to improve wheelchair access, including improvements to paths (tarmac with a resin & gravel fixed surface), new ramps and disabled facilities. When Winterbourne House was refurbished in 2010 access was explored thoroughly; ramps, a disabled access lift and toilets... More

Medium-sized garden, located just outside of the Edgbaston Campus. It is one of the many attractions of the main campus, and it deserves a visit, especially when part to a wider trip inside the University. The garden is a peaceful and enjoyable place, where to spend some time with friends or family. Not large as a park, it shows anyhow... More

I feel bad saying this, I feel like a philistine really, but I've now often gone to Winterbourne just to sit in the tea room working. I'd like it to have a wider range of food but the tea is good, the view from the tables is just lovely. And you get to the tearoom through a gorgeous house.

Well worth a visit. The gardens are so beautiful and peaceful: impossible to believe you are only minutes away from the centre of Birmingham.There is a walled garden, beautiful borders, cactus and orchid glass houses, a stone rock garden you can walk through and many plants from all over the world. The house is an Arts and Crafts Edwardian house... More

I love it when beautiful spots like this are maintained in the midst of city life. Visited with 3 friends on a Tuesday, very peaceful. I expect it gets a lot busier at weekends or during school holidays. The grounds are a delight and the house was gloriously restored. Almost all of the plants are carefully labelled which is very...
