A beautiful late Jacobean hall, now in the hands of Birmingham City Council. once the home of Sir Thomas Holte and his family it is set in gardens and parkland and located near to the Church of SS Peter and Paul. It is surprising this hall has survived at all, the surrounding area is incredibly deprived and I would not... More

Booked tour in advance over the phone. Well worth it. A really interesting house with lots to see. Our guide, Barbara, was knowledgeable and pleasant. The gardens were beautiful and lovely to walk around. Would definitely recommend a visit!

A magnificent house with some of the finest plasterwork I've ever seen. This is one of the best preserved Jacobean manors in the country (and the best I've had the pleasure of visiting) with really friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff and volunteers. Entry is a bargain!

Excellent tour and guides. A lot of history in those walls. Well worth the visit. Loved the staging in the rooms. Found a bit of trivia while there. My favorite band IO Earth used a photo of the ceiling panels as their album cover art.

This is a 'taster' guided tour that the Hall is running over the summer holidays and it's well worth the visit. You not only get to see the fabulous rooms but there are objects that the guides carry with them which they pass around to the visitors, great for the kids to get a 'hands-on' feel for life in the...

My formative years were spent living nearby and I have many happy memories of playing in Aston Park and around Aston Hall. In my adult years I have visited the Hall many times and the candlelight events are truly marvellous. Prior to this visit I was last there about 3 years ago. Then, the hall had opening times when visitors... More

We dropped in on Aston Hall one Sunday afternoon on our way back to London for Manchester. We had booked in for one night in Birmingham and wanted to see a bit of the area. We spent the afternoon with some friends at Aston Hall and it really was very interesting and historical. There is quite a bit for the... More

This is a fantastic house with beautiful gardens. We visited on a Sunday with two German friends and were taken around the house on a guided tour by several excellent and very knowledgable volunteers. The cafe serves very nice coffee. The admission fee is very reasonable. Aston Hall is well worth a visit. We will definitely go again when others... More
