Overview
More
Fifteen acres of glorious landscaped gardens with over 7000 plants, shrubs and trees - and a new Butterfly House. Close to Birmingham city centre, this hidden tranquil setting also has four glasshouses taking the visitor from the hot steamy heat of the Tropical rainforest with its rich vegetation, through to the Sub-Tropical House with its stunning palms and tree ferns. The visitor moves through to the Mediterranean House, with its citrus plants and bright conservatory-type blooms - and finally to the stark contrast of the Arid House with desert climate and stunning cacti.

I didn't realise until recently that Birmingham had any Botanical Gardens and was pleasantly surprised when I visited them recently. Really enjoyed walking round the gardens which are well maintained. Only thing I will say is make sure you register your car in the car...More

Yes there is good access for a buggy. The grounds are paved and well maintained so they will be easy for the buggy and for your elderly mother. It may be best to contact them direct to discuss what the price includes. My... More
