Highbury Gardens, 4 Yew Tree Road

Highbury Gardens, 4 Yew Tree Road, Moseley, Birmingham

The building is a Venetian Gothic, Ruskin inspired Victorian mansion house set in a designed landscape which is used to inspire the architectural detail within the house. Originally the house and gardens were built on the fringe of a rapidly expanding industrial city (Birmingham) and currently lie within a suburban setting. The house and grounds form an integral part of a wider publicly accessible park; the grounds and wider park being always freely accessible every day of the year. The house is open monthly by the Trust with activities and tours. In addition to the Trust's ad hoc free open days with activities. At other times it is part of the City Council's operational activity and is hireable for a fee.

Opening Arrangements

The grant funding related to this return was related to improvements to the landscape only. The opening arrangements for 2024 are for the grounds and wider park to be open access and free for all visitors 24 hours per day, every day of the year. We are expecting improvement works to the landscape and the house commencing in 2024 which may limit access to certain areas. These works will enhance our accessibility within the grounds joining up paths and making the main paths within the original landscaped gardens to be wheelchair accessible.
