No good for what we were looking for. None the less nice to have a look around the hall and its historic surroundings.

We drove down from Cumbria and made a beeline for this house. We arrived at 12.30pm only to be told that we could only be booked into the 2.15pm tour and we were not able to wait. Very disappointing! No mention on website of ANY booking arrangements. How about online bookings or feedback on daliy booking status to avoid wasted... More

An amazing historical overview of Aston and the growth of Birmingham. I am told that the candle light visit is a must, one day I will.

The hall is just beautiful and finding out about the history of the hall from a 90 minute personal tour made it far more interesting than just reading cards or no information available. The staff were so friendly and really informative, also they didn't mind you keep asking questions to find out more and more of its history. The grounds... More

We have been to Aston Hall a few times now. So as we like the house and gardens, we thought we would come on Dads Birthday 🎂. On the website it stated prices were between £3-4.00 which we thought was reasonable. But when we went to pay, we were told that during the week, it was £8.00 and a tour... More

I say hidden gem as this although is a large place is not known by all in the city. It is not really advertised. Sadly it over the centuries has been hemmed in by a motorway, bypass, football stadium and multiple homes. It is the sort of hall you would expect in the country or on the edge of a... More

I've done Aston Hall by candle light a couple of times and loved it both. A great way too see the building in a different way. Even if it is a bit creepy I think this would b e great for ever family to do. This just adds to the excitement

not good value for money. After travelling such a long way I was disappointed with what was on offer. So many queues and staff looked as if they wished they were somewhere else. Not very forthcoming when asked questions on what they were making.
