Had a lovely afternoon in the sunshine yesterday with my mum and the kids. Easter egg hunt around the stunning hall, animal experience, sword fighting and circus skills. Excellent activities and all for £2 each. Thank you.

This is our second visit to Aston Hall. Our last visit was 12th April 2014, the first day the Hall was open for the season. Upon checking the Hall website, it tells you what days the Hall is open - but not the time! Second visit didn’t start well. Till in the shop wasn’t working - leading to a backlog... More

This is the perfect place to take children!! It has a lot of interaction and lots of learning opportunities. All the grass lands mean they can burn off loads of energy too! A lovely summers day out - a must!

We took a school trip - 40 seven year olds - to Aston Hall for a day of learning about The Great Fire of London and People in Portraits. It was wonderful! The day was broken into two parts in order to accommodate all of us. One two hour session, punctuated by toilet breaks and snacks, saw the children travel... More

Located in the beautiful Aston Park, It's obvious Aston Hall's candlelight event is hugely popular, I've been informed that over 6,000 people visited throughout the month of November. I went along with my husband - our 7th Candlelight visit I think, and as usual enjoyed the whole experience. Yes it was a cold winter night, and we had to wait... More
