Winterbourne House and Garden occupies a very attractive, gently sloping site close to the heart of the campus of the University of Birmingham.
The Edwardian Arts and Crafts Garden covers 1.9 hectares (6 acres) and combines themed gardens and plant collections ranging from scree gardens to herbaceous borders, a perennial meadow, geographical collections and an orchid house.
Wander through the woodland walk, stroll through the hazelnut tunnel, cross the 1930 s Japanese Bridge or simply soak up the tranquillity of this perfectly English Edwardian home.
Winterbourne House was built in 1903 by J.S. Nettleford (of Guest, Keen and Nettleford, metal merchants) and the gardens were designed by his wife Margaret (nee Chamberlain). The property was later owned by John MacDonald Nicolson (of Bell, Nicolson and Lunt Warehousing) who in 1943 bequeathed the house and garden to the University. Winterbourne Botanic Garden was later built up as a teaching element and now includes features of special botanical, horticultural and amenity interest. The house re-opened to the public in May 2010 after a stunning refurbishment.
