LO CA L A R E A Escape

LO CA L A R E A Escape into a Garden WHATEVER THE WEATHER, VISITING SOME GLORIOUS GARDENS WILL STILL BE WONDERFULLY SOOTHING FOR MIND, BODY AND SOUL THIS MONTH. HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVOURITES, RIGHT ON THE DOORSTEP Shugborough, Milford, near Stafford The gardens and parkland of this National Trust-run property are due to be open between 9am and 4pm every day in January. Visitors are asked to book in advance wherever possible, to avoid disappointment on the day. Takeaway food and drink are available and the play area is still open. Wightwick Manor and Gardens, Wightwick Bank, Wolverhampton The gardens at Wightwick Manor are due to be open to visitors every day in January, but you’ll need to book your visit in advance. You will also be able to buy takeaway food and drink from the tearoom. The gardens at Wightwick were redesigned by Thomas Mawson in 1904 and have plenty to discover, even in the depths of winter. Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Edgbaston The glasshouses are currently closed due to coronavirus restrictions but you can still visit the gardens and playground. Booking in advance is requested and you will be able to buy takeaway food from the cafe. If you’re very lucky you may well catch some early flowers in bloom. Winterbourne House and Garden, Edgbaston The house and tearoom may be closed but the gardens and shop remain open to visitors at Winterbourne. People are asked to book their visit in advance and follow the suggested route around the garden. Winterbourne is one of the best surviving examples of an Edwardian Arts and Crafts suburban villa garden in the country. 38
