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

I have now lived in Birmingham for over 10 years and thought I have run out of places to see that I haven't seen before. But... I found this little gem on trip advisor and my family and I decided to visit it on a cloudy Saturday afternoon. Firstly, the price is fantastic, for 4 adults and 1 student we... More

Aston Hall is one of Birmingham’s treasures but this time I mistakenly trusted my GPS to get me there as last time my wife and I were mired in a labyrinth of sometimes run-down terraced housing. This time my GPS lead us astray and we arrived with time for not much more than a walk-through. It didn’t bother my wife... More

Having got the train from Birmingham and getting off at Aston I wondered where on earth I had arrived. But a short walk through the industrial area and under the flyover next to Aston Villa's football ground was Aston Hall. £4 for adults and kids for free (under 15) was a bargain to see this beautiful house especially the great...
