Why should I use VenueScanner?
When our founder, Rebecca Kelly, first thought up the idea of VenueScanner, she wanted to create a genuinely useful resource that matched PAs and party planners with amazing venues. We started in London and have since expanded into towns and cities right around these shores. Birmingham is a place we’re especially keen to champion.
It’s resulted in us helping people to find venues for smaller events - your exercise classes, birthday gatherings and meetings - right up to large-scale functions like business conferences and team away day experiences. Basically, whatever event you’ve got in the pipeline, we’ve (almost definitely) sourced a venue for a function just like it before.
We’ve got a portfolio of some of the best garden party venues Birmingham has to offer, which has understandably grown more popular ever since the pandemic made outside gatherings safer to plan.
Simply tell us a little bit about the event you’re planning: the event type, budget, area of town and preferred date, and we’ll have a shortlist of beautiful Birmingham garden venues at your fingertips. And don’t forget: it’s free to make an enquiry to a venue from our platform.
What’s so good about a venue with a garden?
Much has been made of how the risk of COVID transmission is lower outdoors when compared to in. Garden venue hire in Birmingham has seen an increase in enquiries simply because people feel safer when they are based outside.
But there’s also something about Brum in the sunshine, isn’t there? No matter where you’re based in the city - or if you’re travelling in from the suburbs - you’ll most likely have a favourite venue with a beer garden, secret rooftop or exclusive balcony. Having a couple of drinks and mixing with your friends (in a socially distanced way, naturally) just hits different when you’re in the great outdoors.
You’ll find some of the best roof garden venues in Birmingham on VenueScanner, and we’re also really strong when it comes to wedding venues in Birmingham, too. We get plenty of enquiries for venues with outside space for birthday drinks, as well, and throwing a garden party in Birmingham is a good shout if you’ve been asked to arrange a company away day.
What are the best areas for a garden party in Birmingham?
Let's start with the leafy suburb of Edgbaston, just outside of central Birmingham and perfect for those out-of-city summer vibes. Birmingham Botanical Gardens is the ideal venue for the ultimate summer garden party in this area. It's an incredibly popular choice for those looking for garden wedding venues in Birmingham too. However, if you want something more casual, The White Swan and The High Field both have gorgeous sun-soaked beer gardens great for birthdays and smaller celebrations.
Another area you should consider for great beer gardens in Birmingham is Harbourne. Quaint and leafy like Edgbaston, it's home to gems like The Plough's Night Jar Garden with its own super convenient outdoor bar.
Heading back towards the Bullring, there are plenty more beer gardens to choose from. The Canal House and The Distillery are firm favourites with the added benefit of being canalside. For something a little more quirky head to city-centre treasure, Jekyll and Hyde. Its Alice and Wonderland inspired beer garden is an excellent choice for a unique office summer party (with cocktails served in mini bathtubs!). The Jewellery Quarter is also a great area if you are looking to find the best gardens in Birmingham city centre. Don’t miss The Lord Clifden: another top pick filled with graffiti-inspired artwork and vintage decor.
Finally, Digbeth has plenty on offer if you're looking for garden venue hire in Birmingham’s industrial bohemian district. Here you’ll find Birmingham’s oldest working pub, The Old Crown, and The Old Spotted Dog which both have lovely outdoor spaces.
