Visited with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed experience. Gardens just past their best, however, delightful atmosphere, lots families with young children enjoying the visiting gymnasts in the gardens and self tours of the house available with very knowledgeable guides. Excellent value for money at £4 for adults, children free.

This is a really interesting country house which is a great example of a smaller Jacobean grand house. You get to see an awful lot of the building (including servant rooms in the attics, a rare treat) and there are some great information boards, especially on the later history of the house and its survival (these are intelligently written).

This is a Jacobean house with links to Matthew Boulton. It was besieged during the English Civil War. Visitors can see where a cannon ball hit the ornate stair case. It is situated just north of Birmingham city. Built when Aston was more important than Birmingham. It has a very interesting history. Although it is in a built up area... More

Incredible mansion (at walking distance from the Aston Villa Football Club). Great place to go with kids.

Went to Aston Hall as part of a wedding entourage. The party took photos in the beautiful surroundings and gardens.

I managed to visit Aston Hall after over a year living in the city and I would say is a must for all the visitors! Really friendly staff happy to share the stories about the house!

Loved the history and the decor of the place. Too many tour guides interrupting the tour when we just wanted to look around, other than that, loved it.

Nestled away in its urban surrrounding lies this interesting building linking Birmingham to its past, very in depth stories of the halls involvement in the civil wars. Friendly staff, nice and serene atmosphere. Keep a look out for the ghost, she's fast!

Nice place, just some graffiti which ruins a wonderful place where people can relax and enjoy. Easy location, lots of parking make it easy to view. It was free for me aswell!

If this was a NT property it would be bursting at the seams. Good for Brum, bad for visitors. At the time of our visit a young school party was just leaving which left about 8 of us to enjoy the upstairs guided tour. There's a lot more of this grand house open than in previous years. What's special about... More
