Winterbourne Botanic Garden
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. Guided walks and special events are held; details are available at the website. A car park, toilets and café are available on site and the garden is accessible to disabled visitors.
The Bancroft Gardens are located at the river Avon, directly in front of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The Garden is home to Lord Gowers memorial of William Shakespeare but also features a 15-century stone bridge and the Country Artists fountain. The garden is popular with street entertainers and offers the possibility to take a boat trip on the river and the canals.
Anne Hathaway's Cottage
Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare's wife, has spend her childhood in this timber framed cottage and young William came to visit her here during their romance before their marriage. The former farmhouse dates back to the 15th century but some of its building structure suggests that its origins date back much further than this. It is possible to take a tour of the house which is administered by The Shakespeare Trust and you can see the bed in which Anne was born and a wealth of original features. Also open to the public is the traditional cottage garden which has won several awards.
There are a tea room, free parking facilities and gift shop on site. Due to its structure the house offers only limited access for wheelchair users but it is possible to take a virtual reality tour on site.

Sherwood Forest Country Park
Sherwood Forest is an ancient area of woodland located in North Nottinghamshire and surrounding the village of Edwinstowe. It covers an area of over 450 acres and it is now a designated National Nature Reserve which is managed by English Nature and is of great ecological importance. Historically this was the home of the legendary outlaw Robin Hood and, thanks largely to this legend, this area now attracts over half a million visitors every year.
The Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre lies at the heart of this forest and is in close proximity to the Major Oak, which is said to have been Robin Hood's principal hiding place. Events include a Robin Hood Festival in summer and there is a restaurant and shop on site. Access to the Park is free but there is parking charges at the visitors centre, which is open daily from 10h30 to 17h00, but closing at 16h30 November to March.
Fotheringhay is a small village with a surprisingly large church which dates to the time when this small Northants village was a very important place. The church was built in the 15th Century and is the burial place of Dukes and Duchesses of York including the parents of Richard III. When Mary Queen of Scots was locked up in the nearby Fotheringhay Castle, it is believed that she was given a room overlooking the (protestant) church to remind her constantly of the 'error of her ways' in being a Catholic.
The Church receives a lot of support from the Richard III Society who endowed it in 2000 with a new Organ.
The Cathedral Church of St Peter, St Paul and St Andrew was founded in 655 AD and is one of the UK's oldest cathedrals. It has had a chequered history - being burned down and rebuilt in the 12th Century. Sections were destroyed during the Civil War and fire again attacked the building in 2001. Despite all of this, the Cathedral stands tall and proud as the most significant building in the city.
The cathedral is situated in calm and tranquil gardens at the heart of the city of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire and is open every day of the week - from 9 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday; from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturdays and from 7.30 am to 5 pm on Sundays. Visitors who wish to remain for the services are welcome to stay past the closing time.
There is no entrance fee, but donations are (obviously) welcomed.
