The is a small place with a very interesting past. The guided tour takes about 80 minutes and is fascinating. The guide managed to keep my attention for the entire tour which is quite unusual. From the tour I discovered several facts that I was not aware of so I would recommend that you take it. It's price is included... More

As part of our tour to try and see as many houses owned by the National Trust this certainly is one of the better ones. The gardens are not too large so if poor on your legs then you get the opportunity to see a good selection without a very long walk. The house and its facts are very interesting... More

You could go round this property under your own steam but it is well worth going with the guide. It takes about an hour and you get the whole tale of how King Charles the II hid at the house, plus lots of other tales of the rooms, some of the artifacts and sayings that have come forward into modern...

We had a really interesting time. We're interested in 17th century British history and this looked like a great place to visit and see another bit of the jigsaw. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. Pat was our guide and she was amazing. She really made the history come alive and ensured everyone got to see and touch... More

Our excellent, extremely knowledgable guide, Nicola, took us round the house and told us the story of how the future King Charles II took refuge here whilst on the run after his defeat at the battle of Worcester. We were shown the bed he slept in, the priest hole where he slept and the eindow at which 3 children sat,... More

Visited the house for the first time in nearly 25 years. It appears to be much more organised these days with the guided tours which can be a bit overpowering for children. I can understand as it's not a huge property and at very busy times could be potentially dangerous if not managed. The interesting thing about Moseley is that... More

Wow - visited as we were passing through the area. We are No members so had free entry and took the guided tour. Malcolm was our tour guide and the knowledge this man has was incredible. Great history of the house and it's association with King Charles II, very interesting and explained the meanings behind some old saying. Absolutely loved... More

This was an amazing place to visit and the staff were really friendly. We were too late for a guided tour, but we were shown where to go and we were left to have a good look round the house where King Charles 1 was hidden, it was over 3 floors and it was lovely. The gardens were very well... More

Visited today and loved Moseley Old Hall. Helped by the fact that our Guide for 45 minutes was Malcolm who's enthusiasm and knowledge of the house, it's occupants, that period in history and his humour had all of us engrossed. A little disappointed with the food choice in the Tearoom compared to other NT properties. The only hot food available... More

Despite nestling near to the M54 motorway, this attraction is interesting and fascinating enough to help you blank out the noise. The gardens are excellent, particularly the knot garden. The room guides are well informed and friendly.
