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.

Lovely afternoon out despite the rain. Lots of plants to see ... including lots of unusual plants from around the world as well as a wide variety of roses. Many different paths to follow with different themed gardens to discover! Worth a visit!

Stunning gardens and green house. We had a summer BBQ here and it was the most gorgeous evening . We were sat out talking on the patio area long into the evening and only stalked inside to top up our wine! Venue was so good, we've booked our Christmas do here too!!

Lovely peaceful place with a variety of different gardens to explore. There are a couple of greenhouses and a butterfly house. There is a children's play area and lots of room for children to run around. Nice shop and cafe.

What a great way to spend an afternoon. Lovely, easy walk around and so many beautiful plants and flowers to see. There was a few improvements taking place in the reception area, but still quick and easy to access. They have a basic cafe and a shop with lots of nice goodies..

Finally managed to go to the gardens and glasshouses and left a little underwhelmed. There were no great floral displays and it looked a little sad. The tropical house however, was magnificent. The gardens don't have a manicured neatness or a unkempt look they are a nice compromise, just a little empty. They have definitely made the most of what... More

I recently attended an evening dinner , arriving a little late & missed the poor notices plus car registration machine, hidden by other late guests in the foyer. I have just received a £100 bill.It's underhand . If the Botanical Gardens want to charge for the car park, put a barrier on the gate & issue a ticket on entry... More

The Gardens were enjoyable and we had a pleasant half day in the sunshine...all was ruined a few weeks later with a One Hundred Pound parking fine. We paid for entry which includes parking, but a clever misleading registration machine was apparently filled in wrong ( although no evidence was presented from them) and despite having a receipt for parking...
