Winterbourne was built in 1903 for the Nettlefold family. Now owned by the University of Birmingham and restored to its Edwardian Arts and Craft splendour, the house is set within seven acres of beautiful botanic gardens. Located not far from Birmingham city centre, Winterbourne is a hidden gem – home to beautiful antiques and over 6,000 plant species from around the world. The house offers two floors of exhibition rooms for you to explore while the gardens include a woodland walk, hazelnut tunnel, glass houses and a walled garden.
Wheelchairs can access most of the garden via recently upgraded paths although there are areas where full access is not possible. Manual wheelchairs can access the house and we have a lift for the second floor. Due to space limitations, some large motorised chairs may not be able to use the lift. The tearoom, gift shop and an accessible toilet are all available on the ground floor level of the site. We have a manual wheelchair and a mobility scooter that can be borrowed for use around the garden when availability allows. The gift shop is fitted with a low level counter.
