Heritage Open Day – (Sold Out)
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).
