Birmingham Botanical Gardens online: information and bookings

The Birmingham Botanical Gardens were opened in 1832. They were designed by J. C. Loudon, a leading garden planner, horticultural journalist and publisher. Today the gardens offer a superb opportunity for recreation and relaxation close to the centre of Birmingham.

The Terrace is named in memory of J. C. Loudon who planned these Gardens in 1830, and is the first place to view the main sweep of the Gardens. It is a place to relax, to stroll and converse, to eat sandwiches or merely to sit in the sun.

The Main Lawn is an amphitheatre that acts as a sun trap, with higher ground behind cutting off the cold northerly winds. The Lawn is therefore a popular spot for picnics in fine weather and is, indeed, the hub of the Gardens, inviting the visitor to leave the formal Terrace and explore the more remote regions beyond.

In a quiet enclosure behind the playground is a red-brick cottage manifesting a medley of architectural styles, indeed almost amounting to an architectural joke. The Cottage provides a natural setting for a collection of old favourite plants reminiscent, at least in the public imagination, of the cottage gardens of the last century.
