Well worth a visit. Different guides for various parts of the hall..... Some guides more interesting than others. The tour lasts approximately an hour and a half. Groups of 25 people at a time, so there is never any mass build up of people. Good size coffee shop. Plenty of outdoor space for children to run around. Plenty of car... More

Excellent guided tour by several museum workers. Stories about SirThomas Holte who lived there were very interesting. Small cafe and shop was just a table selling few items.

I love this sort of place but I didn't even know Aston Hall existed until a friend suggested we meet up there with the kids. We arrived an hour before it opened but easily spend an hour exploring the gardens and playing in the playground (probably council run) at the end of the gardens. The grounds are extremely well kept... More

We visited Aston Hall for a candle-lit tour during the winter. There was lots going on and various stalls selling food and drink. It is an old build and if you re there at night in the winter - it does get cold so wrap up!

Visited Aston Hall with my grandaughter and had a guided toure. We had 3 guides and they were all very knowledgeable on the history and occupants of the Hall.The house is a hidden gem in a built up area of Birmingham and has been very well preserved and furnished with period furniture. The gardens have been well laid out and... More

Aston Hall used to be a wonderful day out for the family or even on your own. A beautiful house with lots to see. Not any more. Compulsory tours around a few choice rooms with tour guides that don't know what they're doing or talking about. All the old rooms you used to be able to visit are now closed... More

I loved Aston Hall the guides are all friendly and informative. The long gallery is truly beautiful it is well worth visiting this Jacobean house with history from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries

Visited on 12th August at 1.30 slot. First tour guide, I think his name was Paul, was very good, very enthusiastic and passionate about Aston Hall and obviously knew his stuff, me and my daughter learned a lot of interesting facts from this guide. He encouraged questions and was happy to answer any. The problem was the next two tour... More

I had no idea that this place existed until I went there on The Big Hoot trail. We didn't go into the hall on this visit, but we did explore the grounds and thought they were lovely. We'll be going back soon to take the tour and see it all.

A great place to visit. I have visited many time over the years and never tire of its grandeur and charm. If you can try to visit in the Autumn when its possible to visit by candle light. This really brings out its true historical character. You will not be disappointed by a visit to Aston Hall.
