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...

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). There... More

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
