The house is well worth a visit , and is manned by a willing and informative band of volunteers. It was so nice to engage in merry banter with a group of garden volunteers, who were engaged in keeping the laurel hedging in trim. We agree with the other reviewers, that some attention is needed to the café experience. We... More

We stopped by for tea and cake on a circular walk, but the cafe seemed not to be coping well. There were uncollected trays and crockery all over the place and no trays in the service area. I had to clear a tray ion an empty table myself and then had to wait some time to be served. Thee didn't... More

Yesterday we decided to go to Hanbury for a walk and lunch and started queuing at 12.30pm. We finally were served and received our food at 1.40pm. Although the staff were polite there appeared to be no urgency or system in place to take orders, make drinks or pay for food. Sandwiches and baguettes were not made up and after... More

The house is typical of most National Trust properties, once you've seen one then you've seen most of them. At this attraction, the gardens are extensive and remarkably good. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the whole area. However, we then decided to have some refreshments in the Stables(?) Restaurant and we can only say that it was a fairly dreadful experience.... More

Wow I could live here! A beautiful looking house set in some amazing gardens. It was a shame that the house and grounds closed relatively early, do check opening times, so only managed a quick tour around the gardens, which were delightful and amazing. Such precision and symmetry which must take an inordinate amount of time to maintain. The Orangery... More

Have been to dozens of NT Houses over the last 40 years, sometimes it's the House that is the star, sometimes the Gardens. Didn't go in the house today as we were passing through and the sun was out, so the gardens took our attention. Never seen a classic Parterre planted our with marigolds, alyssum and snapdragons in the precise... More

Had an hour to spare and enjoyed a walk around some of the grounds here, it seems a popular location with families. Will visit again when in the area.

Situated near to Bromsgrove and Droitwich, the national trust property of Hanbury Hall is very easy to find and on arrival you are greeted with a beautiful facade after a short walk from the car park. For those less able, there is transport! The house has an excellent mix of interiors and stunning staircase with scenes bringing you the story... More

Enjoyed exploring the gardens which have plenty of variety to interest. Long straight drives and views. Nice wildflower area and impressive orchard inviting you pick the fallers and leave a donation - we did! The approach to the house is impressive - nicely proportioned facade. The house inside is less impressive - not the original furnishings, nor much 'history' to... More

On arrival the house is impressive to look at. Inside it's extremely dark with a rather sour atmosphere. The volunteers do their best but there is very little of interest in display and it's very shabby. The hall and stairs are the best bit. Stunning gardens are well worth checking out and spending some time in. The cafe was the... More
