Things to do at Winterbourne House and Garden review

Winterbourne is a stunning Edwardian house set in 7 acres of beautiful botanic gardens on the outskirts of Birmingham.

Visitors can explore the Grade II listed house before enjoying the wonderful gardens that sit at the back of the building. The house itself features child-friendly, interactive exhibits that bring the history of the building to life.

You can learn about the Nettlefold family that built the house, as well as the other families that lived in the building before it became part of the University of Birmingham in the 1940s. You can even see a piano owned by the grandfather of Lord of the Rings author J. R. R. Tolkein! They also offer family-friendly activity trails.

While it’s pleasant to wander around the house, the gardens are the main draw. Complete with manicured lawns, woodland areas and a stream, there is plenty of space for children to enjoy. You can even access public woodland from the gardens, which is another great plus for families.

There is a small, well-kept play area near the glass houses. It is only suitable for children 8 years and younger, but is an extra bonus for families with younger children.

Overall, Winterbourne House is worth a visit if you’re looking to fill a couple of hours in the peaceful, suburban outdoors. 

Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
