A very beautiful house with a lovely garden. The entry fee was reasonable and well worth it. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We started with the house which is nicely presented and well preserved. You can a have a nice glimpse of how people lived couple hundreds years ago. My personal favourite was the Great Hall. We were... More

I have been here loads of times frowning up, and still would go again it's great to see how people lived then and you get a good idea of what it was like especially in the great hall the floor is not level because how it was built but it gives it charm. Great to take kids and they have... More

Checked out the opening times on the website and arrived at the Hall at 12noon on a Sunday in October. Stood around like spare parts (with many other people expecting to look around the Hall) as it became clear that there were other people turning up for a wedding. We tried telephoning the number on the admission board - no... More

Marvellous Grade 1 Jacobean mansion - everyone coming to Birmingham must visit this beautiful house. They have special events, Halloween and I hope the Candlelit events will happen this year as it does add a real atmosphere.

Excellent for family couples or just by yourself, Aston hall is not too heavy on the pocket either, with entry for adults only £4, with a friendly and informative staff dotted around who detail the history behind a lot of what you see. The gardens are amazing and the hall itself has some very interesting facts and if you live... More

I visited Aston Hall yesterday with my sister and my cousin. We had a brilliant day, spending just under 5 hours there. There is a excellent cafe and a lovely shop with affordable souvenirs and ample free parking. The house and gardens were very interesting and the guides extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this as a good day... More

I've been here during the event "pikes and muskets", revisiting the history of the Aston Hall during the Civil War. Absolutely interesting, and free too (just in few cases). Tips: visit jointly with the near Aston Perish Church.

This is a beautifully preserved large Jacobean manor house. Entrance fee is only £4 per adult, which is a lot cheaper than National Trust, yet you get a really interesting house with cheerful, well-informed staff, and pleasant grounds to walk in, all up to the standard you would expect from the NT. Parking is free (except on match days when... More
