Winterbourne Garden is the University of Birmingham's botanic garden and is used by students as well as being open to the public. It was originally an "early 20th century suburban villa garden", the small estate having been built in 1903. The last private owner bequeathed it to the University in 1944. The first garden layout was inspired by Gertrude Jekyll of the Arts and Crafts movement and was further developed over the years. Today its six acres hold national collections of roses and displays plants from all over the world. Particular features are the Nut Tunnel, woven from living hazel, and a sunken rock garden with Japanese Tea House. It is open April to September, Mondays to Fridays 11am to 4pm and Sundays 11am to 5pm. The remainder of the year it is open Mondays to Fridays noon to 3.30pm.
