Sunday 19th September – Heritage Day


We only have limited parking for this event so if visitors could arrive by Public Transport we would be extremely grateful (23 and 24 bus’s stop outside and nearest train station is Five Ways) if you do need to travel by car, once our car park is full, alternative parking can be found in Edgbaston Girls School (next door to the Gardens) and Richmond Hill Road (road next to The White Swan).

The Gardens are open from 10 am – 6 pm during the week and 10 am – 7 pm on weekends.

Visitor Announcements:

We are continuing to make sure our visitors and team feel safe by asking visitors to book tickets online ahead of their visit and ensuring masks are worn in our reception, glasshouses, shop and tearoom by everyone – apart from those who are exempt.

Our much loved Butterfly House is now open, and our Garden Centre and Tea Room are open as normal.


Being one of Birmingham’s best attractions, The Birmingham Botanical Gardens offers something for everyone, be it one of our four stunning glasshouses showing tropical rainforest to arid desert, playground, tearoom and garden gift shop all surrounded by some of the most beautiful gardens in the UK.

There are four glasshouses which range from our exotic Tropical House through to our Subtropical, Mediterranean and Arid Houses. There is a large lawn in front of the glasshouses with a range of beds and shrubberies around its perimeter. Overall, the character is that of a Victorian public park with a bandstand set in 15 acres (6.1 ha) of landscaped greenery.
