Attraction Details
Owner description: 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.

“tranquility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a favourite place to spend an afternoon with a friend.
Beautiful gardens and always lovely to see seasonal changes
They also offer teaching (e.g. bonsai) at weekends and the coffee shop is good

“Botanical Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Haven’t visited recently, but memories are excellent. Need to update my visit to see if the Beautiful Botanical gardens are still worthy of such high praise

“Lovely place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

It's a lovely place but coming there in January wasn't the best idea. I came to buy some houseplant and I found what I needed. However it's a shame they don't sell tools and compost.
