Restored to its Edwardian Arts and Craft splendour, Winterbourne House is a unique heritage attraction – set within seven acres of beautiful botanic gardens. Only minutes from Birmingham city centre, Winterbourne is a hidden gem – home to beautiful antiques and over 6,000 plant species from around the world. Wander along the woodland walk, stroll through the hazelnut tunnel, cross the 1930’s Japanese Bridge or simply soak up the tranquillity of this perfectly English Edwardian home.

With beautiful gardens, very reasonable admission charges, beautiful interior of house and easy parking this attraction at the University of Birmingham is well worth a visit. Very pleasant and informative staff who were not pushy and beautiful rooms and stories gave you a real feel of the place. Very quiet and serene surroundings and lovely cafe with terrace with stunning... More

Great place ... beautiful tranquil gardens. Particular note .. Printing works museum, absolutely fascinating. Chap demonstrating equipment was a silversmith by trade but presented the equipment and methods in a very informative way. Don't miss it !

The Winterbourne House and Garden is a beautiful place, ideal for a date or just to relax. I find it much more attractive than the Birmingham Botanic Gardens.

We arrived at opening time on a... More

Beautiful arts and crafts home and gardens. Activities for all the family, very relaxing, make sure you wander around the water/bog garden and walk to the lake by the golf course. A haven within the city which is definitely worth visiting.

We visited as a family of five with two children and three adults. There is a fee to enter but it's reasonable. With two senior citizens, it cost about £20. Winterbourne House has a lot of history to it and visitors can access parts of the house to capture this. The children enjoyed this immensely especially as there were props... More
