Past, Present & Future: Birmingham Botanical Gardens from 1831 to tomorrow
Join us at Birmingham Botanical Gardens & Glasshouses to explore past and present. You will have the opportunity to join a history walk or horticultural walk. From tree ferns not found anywhere else in the world, to the surprisingly sweet story of our Cadbury Shelter there is plenty to see, smell and enjoy. Both tours will be delivered by our expert team here at the Botanical Gardens.
Your tour booking includes free entry to the gardens for the day. You are welcome to arrive early and enjoy the gardens before and after your tour. Please meet at reception 10 minutes before the tour starts.
Tickets are limited and booking is essential.
