As spring makes its rather chilly entrance, Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre is looking forward to the first of many new beginnings this year.
Garth House has been a feature of the University of Birmingham’s conference and meeting portfolio for many years. This historic house was built in 1904, designed by renowned Arts and Crafts architect William Bidlake. It’s now been fully restored in sympathetic style, to honour and reflect the traditional style of this impactful early twentieth-century movement.
Reopening early this summer as a luxury hotel, alongside Hornton Grange, these behind-the-scenes views from a few weeks ago give you an insight into what’s in store.
With green shoots aplenty dotted around the site, we’re waiting for daffodils and then bluebells to burst into life around the gardens.
The arrival of Storm Emma, however, brought a surprise coat of snow to Edgbaston. As works continue to complete the new-build part of the hotel, the weather lent the whole site a touch of magic. Unseasonal, perhaps, but strikingly beautiful.
Visit again soon to see more developments from the site, and for more news on our opening plans.
