Picked up a voucher for this attraction and drove over mid-morning in the week. Parked on the roadside easily enough and gained entry. While there is not a huge amount to look at, there are nonetheless plenty of things of interest and if you're the correct size, to try on! There are information boards helping you to understand what you... More

We were lucky that this beautiful 500 year manor house was open. It was moved to this site by the Cadburys. The manor house was originally owned by a tax collector. The fee is reasonable and there is plenty of information on Tudor history. What I learnt was that many of our idioms originate from this period of history. "... More

Brilliant place to visit especially if you have just been to Cadbury world. There is an admission charge but only small and you get a discount if you have just been to Cadbury world. Great house to look round and trying on the different costumes was great fun as well. Toilets available.

Never heard of this place until I went today with a friend. Easy to find with the Sat Nav ! But difficult otherwise. We were the only people there but the building is full of interesting facts. Period costumes available to try on !

Its interesting tucked in the heart of Bournville, we had a group on voucher for 2 people £5, Didnt take us much more than 10mins to look round, i dont think it would be worth going again. When we came out we went for a walk around the village green as well, total time in Bourneville was 45mins

A wet and miserable Bank Holiday Sunday was brightened on my visit to Selly Manor. Our small group felt special with the very warm welcome and additional information provided by the receptionists. Although no where near as big as Aston Hall, Selly Manor provided the opportunity for members of our group to walk around at our leisure. This provided ample... More

Better than many a NT property....self supporting. This was an absolute joy to spend time in. We spent some time in the 'hall' playing games of yesteryear....marbles, skittles,hoopla etc..This place ouzes history and provides visitors with well presented information sheets that you actually want to read. The main building is full of artifacts, many of which you can touch...nice change.... More

We called in after visiting Cadbury World to look at this fascinating historical building, taking advantage of the discount available to Cadbury ticket holders. This is a little gem which is worth looking at, with beautifully planted gardens, plenty of historical artefacts indoors and an opportunity to try on some replica period costumes. Make sure you pop in while you're... More
