  • Great place to take time out in the middle of the city. Great kids playground and a large lawn for a picnic; as well as a tea shop if you dont want to take your own. In addition to the garden there we...  more »

  • Perfect for a walk and a bit of piece and quiet or for running after the kids and enjoying the large playground. My 2.5year old son loved the birds and fish near the entrance and the water features, also investigated the herb garden. Parking fills up very quickly...
  • Great green space in middle of Birmingham. Enjoyable for whole family. In addition to plants, bird aviary x 2 and playgrounds with Peacocks wondering around freely. Cafe is pricey but gift shop is very good. Hold events throughout the year.
  • I gave it 5 stars as it's good value for money, it's £38 for one adult plus guest to use as many times in a one year period. Many different plants and greenery also a well thought of play area for children. Only problem would be the parking as it's quiet small for a venue it's size. Make sure you register your car details at the entrance and keep hold of that receipt for up to 6 weeks I was told by staff.
  • A little something for everyone. Beautiful gardens, history, educational and fun playground for children. Smaller than others I've visited but then you feel like you haven't missed something if you don't spend all day. Great gastro pub round the corner too for afters!
  • Beautiful place for all the family... Children's play area too... Nice cafeteria and reasonable prices... Disability scooters and disabled wheelchairs for hire... A lovely day out......👍
