Baskerville Society: Winterbourne House and Gardens

21st June 2013

Restored to its Edwardian Arts and Craft splendour, Winterbourne House is a unique heritage attraction – set within seven acres of beautiful botanic gardens. Only minutes from Birmingham city centre, Winterbourne is a hidden gem – home to beautiful antiques and over 6,000 plant species from around the world.

In addition, the garden is notable for its many hand carved letterforms and sculptures in wood and stone and guests will be taken on a conducted tour of these lovely examples of horticultural art. The visit will also include a letterpress printing demonstration.

Tea and coffee will be available for purchase in the delightful terrace tea room on the ground floor of the house, which serves tea, cakes and other refreshments throughout the day.

Members £5:  Non Members £10

Maximum numbers: 10
