Great views from a splendid Jacobean style house! Situated in the middle of Aston I was expecting masses of people however the guided tour at a very modest price had less than 10 people, with young knowledgable tour guides who bring the house to life it is definitely worth the price. Would highly recommend!

Aston Hall has long been a family favourite. You wouldn't expect to find something this special in the shadow of spaghetti junction! We have been visiting since 1977 and it hasn't disappointed yet. It is a real window into the civil war. It is well worth going out of your way to.

Football grounds are not normally known for the beauty of their settings, but Villa Park is not only an imposing Victorian edifice in its own right, but it is literally over the road from Aston Park. Slap bang in the middle of this inner city oasis of green is the marvellous Aston Hall. It's no ruin, but it was knocked... More

There is the mandatory guided tour for only GBP4 and they apologize for having to charge. The stories about the house were fascinating, making the tour that much better. The house had many artifacts of the period and was well laid out. Parking was sufficient but we took the bus. Mention to the driver or note that it is beside... More

These days Aston Hall might be in the shadow of the motorway but it's a significant place in the history of Birmingham and the West Midlands. Worth dropping by if you have the opportunity.

Aston Hall is a fabulous jacobean mansion, seeped in History including stays from the Royal family, you can almost imagine going back in time, the canonball hole in the staircase has stuck in my mind since school visits there in childhood. With the newly discovered areas (within the last 10 years) there is even more to see in Aston Hall.... More

The site is well maintained and the garden (though small) a delight. Very friendly and fun volunteers take tours to bring the stories to life. Do have a cup of tea there, you will feel spoiled (in the positive way!).
