Birmingham Botanical Gardens

While I now feel I’m getting to know Birmingham pretty well, there are still a lot of unexplored places to visit. Somewhere that I’ve been wanting to visit for a while is the botanical gardens. Ideally I would have gone with camera in hand in a couple of weeks time when all the autmnal colours have come out, but life is likely to be a little too busy then – or at least I’m not going to have hands spare for the camera. Birmingham Botanical gardens isn’t too far from the city centre, and is a nice break from the urban scenes in the city.

If you’re in Birmingham and looking for something to do for a few hours, it’s well worth a visit. The place itself is quite big withe plenty of paths to walk, and activities for children should you need them…

  1. Great pics and I love the Botanical Gardens. I stay just five minutes from it whenever I visit Birmingham. It’s such a vibrant city that has changed over the years for the better. I’ve written some about the city and the food places ones must visit on my blog in case they are of interest. Cheers.
