We enjoyed our visit to the gardens immensely. Today was "Apple Day" and the gardens had displays of apples, pears, birds of prey, beekeepers, wood-turners and molly dancers. We looked around the gardens and viewed the varied exhibits talking to the exhibitors and sampled their wares. Our visit ended by a visit to the tea rooms where we had a... More

Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens are very much a 'work in progress', but what has been done is delightful. In the 18th century the family that owned the Hall moved on; the gardens from then were neglected. In 1985 restoration began and still continues. On the day we visited, 13.09.15, there were enthusiastic volunteers in attendance who were happy to discuss... More

These gardens , no longer associated with the nearby hall which is now an hotel , were not caught up in the Capability Brown mania which saw the destruction and " improvement " of so many fine gardens in the 18th Century .

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
