Burton Manor College closed on 31st March 2011.

Since 1948 Burton Manor College was  a centre for short day or residential courses.

In 2019 a local developer has converted the main building to offices, demolishing newer buildings and will build houses. The café has opened under new management.

Burton Manor features an historic garden designed by the famous landscape designer Thomas Mawson in 1906. Today this is still as he intended, with geometric gardens on the east, south and north of the house.

The east garden, through an ornamental stone gateway, is a sunken parterre overhung with mature trees. By contrast, the north garden is an elegant enclosure raised above the forecourt.

From the terrace you look across the south garden, with yew hedges surrounding formal compartments on either side of a lily pond, to the fields beyond.

The Glasshouse in the walled Garden. The 120ft long Edwardian Glasshouse has been assembled on the restored brick base. The Ice House. A path has been created and viewing access has been worked on. The gardens were opened in May 2012.
