Beautiful old garden

A unique preserved walled garden, run by volunteers. Very relaxed atmosphere, can ask questions of the gardeners and guides. Dogs and picnickers also welcome

We went to the gardens today 20th August , as we were looking for somewhere to take our 6 year old granddaughter. As it happened there was a family fun day on which was a great surprise. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming there was a small charge to enter but everything was very well organised. There were numerous stalls... More

Really glad we were able to provide fun and pleasure for all of you. What luck you happened on our Family Fun Day. The gardens are constantly changing - Nature is good like that :-) - and we, humans, are always adding more events for adults and children, so do hope you find us worth visiting again sometime. Thank you... More

This was our first time here. The weather was gorgeous. The people were really lovely, down to earth and very friendly to the point of stopping for a chat. Nothing was too much. The charge to enter was minimal (£4.50 each) compared to other places. We took so many photos of the gardens, individual flowers, it was a photographers dream.... More

My husband, Grand-daughter and I have just returned from spending a lovely relaxing afternoon at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens. The gardens themselves are splendid, well maintained and well set out. The music was provided by the West Midlands Light Orchestra who delighted us all with their talents. The weather could have been a little kinder but when the showers came... More

So glad you and your family enjoyed yourselves. Yes the West Midland Light Orchestra were a delight to host and it was lovely to see people making most of the picnicking - even in between the showers ! Do hope we can entertain you again another time. Glynis (general manager) More

Many thanks Bella114 .So glad your visit here pleased. Tranquil it is. I'm just watching a pair of buzzards circling on the thermals above the Gardens, unperturbed by the passing plane from the nearby airport. Magic. More

I spent an enjoyable afternoon at the gardens on a group visit. Our guide Martin gave a knowlegable and entertaining tour. The gardens are beautiful and a credit to their hard working volunteers. They are a hidden oasis in the midst of urban Birmimgham. A welcome mug of tea and slice of delicous homemade cake (extremely reasonably priced) rounded off... More

This is the first time we have visited and was not disappointed. Booked as a little extra treat for my moms 80th birthday. On arrival we were greeted with a very pleasant welcome from all the staff we came into contact with. We had our own private room which made it all the more special. Although there was a wedding...

Hello JoanneC, What a lovely review and it sounds like your Mom had a well deserved treat. We cannot take full credit for your experience though, as this is the Trip Advisor site for the Gardens, rather than the Hotel. We are a separate Charitable Trust working closely with the Hall Hotel. So I'm really pleased you liked the gardens,... More

Lived within four miles of the gardens all my life and this was my first visit. with £4.50 admittance price I was not expecting much, how wrong I was! The good spring weather helped but the gardens are magnificent.

There is more to historic gardens than capability brown and this little gem proves it. Rescued from neglect by volunteers and lovingly restored it conveys a real sense of history. Well worth a visit.
