A garden in Birmingham has been named among the UK’s best to visit this Spring in a list by The Guardian.

Introducing the list, The Guardian says: “In the midst of winter with its low grey skies, the scents and colours of embryonic spring are a welcome morale booster.

“These gardens will offer spectacular views over the coming months, as banks of delicate snowdrops, and armies of budding daffs, bluebells and tulips return.”

Winterbourne House in Birmingham features in the list and visitors can expect to see a range of flowers and plants including “honeysuckles, twisted hazels and early spring bulbs”.

What does The Guardian say about Winterbourne House?

The Guardian says: “This is an Edwardian villa in Birmingham’s pretty Edgbaston suburb.

“Gertrude Jekyll’s books inspired Margaret Nettlefold to design the Arts and Crafts-style grounds with their walled garden, narcissus-bordered nut walk, bridge, stream and pergola, blooming from February into April.

“There are magnolias, rhododendrons and a sinuous new winter garden down some steps from the lawn, with honeysuckles, twisted hazels and early spring bulbs.”

Winterbourne House is open daily and you’ll need to pay to visit unless you're a student or staff member at the University of Birmingham. Prices start from £6.90 and you can find out more about the costs via the website.

From November to February, Winterbourne House is open from 10.30am until 4pm while between March and October, it is open from 10.30am until 5pm.

It’s important to note that last entry to the site as well as the tea room is 30 minutes before the closing time.
