An unexpectedly wonderful trip. Stunning mansion, great cafe, incredible grounds and right next to villa park. The staff were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, the kind of enthusiasm that is infectious. Very impressed!

Went there numerous times as a teenager for school trips. Thought i'd check it out again. The garden is like a piece of sanctuary in Birmingham. Also the paintings there are so authentic, I thought their eyes would move!

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
