Lovely gardens and a delightful little café. Well worth a visit as the staff there are welcoming and may have a tale to tell about the Hall and it's previous residents

We visited on a special event weekend. We were lucky with the weather as it was a warm sunny day. The gardens are lovely, if you're into gardens it's well worth a visit but if you're looking for more than that it's maybe not for you. When we visited there was tea/coffee/soft drinks and cake being served from a small... More

As my partner & I are getting married at Castle Bromwich Hall we decided to look at the gardens that are owned by Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens. We were just stunned to find a beautiful range of gardens, plants, trees & wildlife. They are recreating the gardens back to 1700 / 1800 in time & they look just fantastic. They... More

As relative newcomers to the West Midlands we are on a voyage of discovery. Castle Bromwich Hall and its 'rescued' gardens remain to illustrate the local history, especially as the adjoining church is, or was, the heart of the local community. The Hall itself is now a privately owned hotel and wedding venue. The historic gardens, which lay derelict for... More

Welcome to the West Midlands and glad you have found us. Yes our lovely band of volunteers does a grand job keeping a welcoming atmosphere... and bravely battling the weeds. Every entrance and sale goes to help the Charitable Trust keep the Gardens open to the public, so if we try to provide pleasure in return. Our free tours are... More

A poor garden in terms of work what was once obviously fantastic . Un trimmed hedges and shrubs weeds in abundance and a nearly five pounds entrance fee is just not justified . Only saving grace was that it was a 1940s weekend with many exhibits and people in full costume with a spitfire flying in low at 1 o'clock... More

We're really sorry the Gardens didn't please you, I'm sure the volunteers who work so hard to maintain our 10 acres will be disappointed, they really want people to enjoy the place. As you know gardens respond to the weather very quickly and nature has been particularly good this last couple of weeks at getting the weeds to put a... More

A formal garden accidentally preserved and wonderfully restored, this was the walled garden of Castle Bromwich Hall (now a hotel - pop in for lunch - we did.).

A lovely old hall, set in splendid gardens, with some new extensions and a venue to party, with a church beside for weddings. A nice nights stay, comfy bed, clean room and next to the reception hall. A bit of damp, mould and silver fish, could be sorted........work in progress around the place. Great breakfast..........

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
