We are pleased to invite you to join group facilitator Perm Bhachu to our next in-person get together where we will be visiting the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Please come and join us for a catch up over a refreshing drink and a bite to eat at the Pavilion Tea Room situated on the Loudon Terrace, the perfect place to soak up the sun or relax in the shade followed by a relaxing stroll through the gardens.

Birmingham Botanical Gardens is the green heart of Birmingham, offering a uniquely bio-diverse natural environment. It is one of the UK’s most significant historic Botanic Gardens which has remarkably remained intact since 1829.

The Gardens offers something for everyoneWith over 7000 plants to explore in their 4 Victorian Glasshouses and exciting outdoor Gardens including two Alpine Gardens, the Japanese Garden showcasing the National Bonsai Collection, a Pinetum and a rolling lawn overlooking their authentic bandstand and Aviaries.
