The Chamberlain Highbury Trust

The Chamberlain Highbury Trust are unfortunately closing our doors to the public for now. We are very mindful of the protection and wellbeing of our community and our volunteers and have therefore, in light of Government Guidance around the social interaction and spread of Covid 19, postponed indoor public events. Our Gardens Project is still going ahead and we will protect the volunteers and staff working on this project.
We will still be sharing plans with the public via social media, this website and newsletters and hope to share more of our research and development work. Thank you for your continued support at this difficult time.


Highbury is a Grade II* listed building, which was commissioned as his Birmingham residence by Joseph Chamberlain in 1878, two years after he became member of parliament for Birmingham. It took its name from the Highbury area of London, where Chamberlain had lived as a child.

The south facing grounds of 30 acres associated with Highbury were mainly landscaped by Edward Milner in 1879.

The Chamberlain Highbury Trust was established in 2016 to preserve and restore the house and grounds and give them both a sustainable future.

Our aspiration is to make Highbury fully accessible to everyone and regain its rightful place in Birmingham’s historical and cultural landscape.
