A 400 year old rescued and restored garden on the very edge of the city. We take the 21st century traveller back to the early 18th century countryside. A place of beauty, to breathe deeply, escape and relax. Somewhere to explore and chase, hide and dream.

This 10-acre grade II listed garden transports you back to Dutch and French influenced formal Gardens of the late 17th and early 18th century. It is a very rare survival example of that style and exists in a charming conservation area setting of Castle Bromwich at the very northerly tip of the borough.

Aerial view of gardens including hedge maze, symetric flower patterns and a view of historic castle.

As well as relaxing walks the Gardens’ holly maze, vegetable gardens and heritage orchards are a delight for people of all ages. Our ‘Unplug and Play’ activities and woodland areas encourage young people and their grown-ups to experience their first safe encounters with the outdoors and nature.

Sunny secret walled garden, wall covered in pink climbing flowers and the walk way is lined with lavendar.

Through our seasonal programme of cultural and leisure events and activities visitors can experience everything from Shakespeare on the Lawns, 1940s nostalgia weekends to Picnics under the Blossoms and Mystery Mutts the ultimate Escape Room experience for dogs and their humans.

Wooden Picnic tables within walled garden underneath the shade of blossom trees.  Garden walls are covered with climbing plants and colourful bunting.

Just a 20 minute bus or taxi ride from the International airport, and half an hour from Solihull town it is a fine way to spend an afternoon in the region.

We’re on the Greenways, Cole Valley and other cycle routes – stop off at our café on your way round.
