Tours of the Cadbury factory had always been popular and perhaps a little disruptive, so in 1988 planning began for a purpose built visitor centre.
Cadbury World is open throughout the year.
Built in 1903 for John and Margaret Nettleford, Winterbourne House is a rare surviving example of an Arts and Crafts inspired suburban villa and garden.
Located on Pershore Road, the Birmingham Nature Centre is home to a wide range of animals from around the globe.
From the first weekend in April the centre opens from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm. During the winter (from the last weekend in October) opening times are from 10.00 am until 4.00 pm.
