Although it’s just five miles from the bustle of Birmingham City centre, Castle Bromwich Hall and Gardens feels like it’s worlds away. And it is – or at least the planting is.
Visitors are drawn to Castle Bromwich Hall and Gardens to see period planting at its finest. Spread over ten acres, this lovingly restored English Baroque garden is a rare example of the Dutch-inspired formal gardens of the late 17th century, many of whom didn’t survive past the 19th century English Landscape Movement nor the rapid urbanisation and development of later years. Among the 600 or so species in the collection are those iconic harbingers of spring, wild tulips and daffodils. Other highlights include the mature Holly Maze and the dainty Cyclamen Hederifolium, with its unusual corkscrew stems. Gardeners here observe a strict policy of only using plants that were available by 1762. As you wander among the carefully pruned hedges and mature trees, we think you’ll agree there’s something special about taking in the same sights and smells that our ancestors would have.
Please check the latest COVID-19 guidance before your visit.
