    What to Expect
    Visit: Winterbourne House and Garden, Winterbourne Botanic Garden 58 Edgbaston Park Road University of Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2RT England

    Escape the modern world in period rooms filled with antiques and Edwardian era soft furnishings. As you stroll around the house, learn about the families that lived here and how Winterbourne came to be part of the University of Birmingham.

    Winterbourne is also one of the best surviving examples of an Edwardian Arts and Crafts suburban villa garden in Birmingham. The garden was lovingly created by the homeowners, Margaret and John Nettlefold, using the books of Gertrude Jekyll as guides and inspiration. 

    Today the botanical garden is Grade II listed and offers colour and interest throughout the year. The restored walled garden complete with crinkle-crankle wall, is a riot of rainbow shades from May until October. The lawns are fringed with striking colour themed borders, and beyond lies an original sandstone rock garden and a woodland walk through Gunnera leaves and Rhododendron displays. The botanical garden contains plants from around the globe with collections of plants from China, North and South America and the Alpine areas of the world.

    The garden offers something for all ages, including activity trails for families and a children’s garden.

    We had the 'luxury' afternoon tea. I thought this was OK at best, but nothing special really. Very chunky sandwiches, a mini chicken pie and cheese and tomato quiche, a fairly poor collection of sweet cakes and a scone with a plastic tub of clotted...More
