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. « less

I have had family membership for many years and regard the gardens as an extension of my own (I should wish) as a place to take my family when they visit. Last Monday there were 6 of us got in for no extra charge as the youngest was under 5. The children love the place. It is a safe place... More

This attraction has something for everyone - it is spacious, good plant exhibits and areas, kids play areas and bands of all varieties playing in the summer at weekends. Only downside is the overpriced cafe with very slow service - so take a picnic, most people do . Worth a day out. Would highly recommend.

This was a lovely place to visit and made a lovely afternoon out especially since it was so sunny. There's lots of flowers to see and it's only spring. They had birds to which was lovely. We'll be visiting again in summer when it's in full bloom. Lots of families had taken picnics and there's plenty of green space to... More

Whilst feeling sorry for the folks who have received a £150.00 parking fines, at the time of our visit, the signs telling people of the need to record their car registration were clearly visable in the car park. Having paid (a very reasonable £4.75 for concessions - it's only £7/12.00 for 1/2 adults) and gone through the turnstile, the screen... More

This is a beautiful garden with lots to see. All plants are labelled which really helps! Super views and just a really lovely place to spend a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of Birmingham. Great cakes in the tea room.

I went to the botanical gardens for the first ever time a couple of weeks ago. I went in with my friend and our babies. I have now received a parking fine. When we paid to enter we were not told anything about registering our cars which is ridiculous! If I am paying to enter I would expect all areas... More

I will be returning as we didn't see the gardens in all their Summer glory. I would go early as it does take a long time to get in. They ask you for your home address as you come in and this slows down the entry. However don't let that put you off, if you have any interests in botany... More
