A unique opportunity is here on this years’ Heritage Day when Woodbrooke is opening its doors for the public to see inside the former home of George Cadbury. All are welcome to explore parts of the ground floor of the centre as well as being able to visit the gardens too. Our information boards in the hallway will give you some insight into Woodbrooke’s history and a video will be on loop in one of the meeting rooms to give you more information about Quakers.
Woodbrooke was founded in 1903 by George Cadbury and John Wilhelm Rowntree, who shared a vision to provide the opportunity for Quakers and others to be able to spend time learning together.
The gardens include a lake, herbaceous borders, a walled garden and nature conservation areas.
Woodbrooke is open as part of Bournville Heritage Open Day. This event is part of Bournville Heritage Open Day. Many other historic sites in the wider Bournville area open their doors on Sat 9 Sept. For a full list of events in Bournville, click here
