Great historical building with loads to see and do. All the Birmingham Museums (Sarehole Mill, BMAG, Thinktank, Soho House, Jewellery Quarter, Blakesley Hall.)are worth a visit whether you are local or a tourist.

This is a hidden gem of a place near to Villa Park. The grounds and Hall are both lovely, and there is a welcome lack of swarming tourists although it gets busier in November/December on nights when it is lit by candles. Recommended.

A little bit of classic history not far from a very famous football ground, Full of civil war paintings textiles and local history in period rooms dating back to the 17th century, it was a very knowledgeable visit.

Our son suggested that we visit this hall, and I was pleased that he did, especially as he paid. He has lived in Birmingham for some years and had not visited previously. ACCESS You really need a car to visit, although there is not very much car parking available. The building is a Grade I listed building and is not... More

A very enjoyable stroll around a wonderful House and garden, I intend to go to the candle lit visit sometime. This house has a very warm feel to it, you can imagine what a great place it would have been to grow up in. I have visited many period houses but this does not feel as sterile as some i... More

Lovely few hours spent here. Staff friendly and knowledgable. Gardens looked lovely in Autumn. Cafe was basic (possibly due to end of season) but very nice.

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
