Castle Bromwich Historic Gardens

A place to wander..

18th Century Formal Gardens and Local Nature Reserve Parkland (Grade2*)

10 acres of a unique survival of 350 year old early 18th century formal garden design. The walled garden, once part of the Earl of Bradford’s estate, rescued, nurtured and owned by an independent Charitable Trust. A further 30 acres of the former estate’s historic Parkland, now a Local Nature Reserve, encircles the formal garden. Keeping largely to a period-relevant style with plant species and heritage fruit from 1680-1760 it’s like visiting the Baroque countryside in the middle of a 21st century city.
