Winterbourne Gardens in Late Summer Bloom

Winterbourne is a splendid place to visit just now but don’t wait tool long – Autumn is approaching!

The magnificent blooms serve to distract your vision from the busy city and relax your mind.

Unfortunately, currently as a consequence of Covid 19, only members can be entertained.

However, becoming a member can be arranged at the entrance – member prices can be viewed here . These give you free entry for the next 12 months.
In my experience,, the cost is less than many venues charge for a single visit.

The gardens and house are owned and run by Birmingham University with many volunteers supporting it.

As a visitor. you have at your disposal the gardens, historic Birmingham house, café, shop, printing shop, souvenir shop and events. Being able to take Sunday lunch on the terrace overlooking the gardens without the crowds to me is magic!

By the way I have no financial interest whatsoever in Winterbourne and my article above is aimed at  alerting readers to the very special asset that the residents of central Birmingham have at hand.

    Thank you Margaret. It’s a delightful place – so peaceful and refined. They’ve just opened a snack counter on the terrace so you can have a light lunch or afternoon tea with a view over lawns to flower borders.
