Birmingham Botanical Gardens

How do bananas and pineapples grow? Why is white chocolate white, but milk chocolate brown? Why do cactus plants look so strange? How do your shoes link to the rainforest? What is a Tenrec? Find out the answer to these questions and many more, as your pupils explore our glasshouses and flourishing gardens.
At Birmingham Botanical Gardens, we offer a `school trip` like no other. You can explore our unique glasshouses and experience an authentic rainforest adventure! Then walk straight from experiencing hot and humid tropical conditions into a desert climate and observe the changes to plants due to the seasons.
Allow us to share the knowledge and experience we have gained over 185 years in one of our expertly-taught, cross-curricular teaching sessions that will be tailor-made to your age group and topic. Or opt for a self-guided visit where teachers can lead their own activities using our wide range of comprehensive teachers’ resources.
