Visited here with my partner. The free guided audio tour is very comprehensive explaining the historical facts of the period. Or, you can just simply walk round, & look at the information cards dotted about in various rooms. Fascinating to see where the innovative hidden...More

Harvington House is full of character. You can either go on a guided tour or make your own way around with an audio guide. I found the mermaid passage fascinating. Lots of oak panelled rooms, artefacts and priest holes. Lovely cafe with excellent service. Not...More

A family visit with 4 generations and everyone had a good time. The guide is so knowledgeable. There was lots to see and stories to hear. A worthwhile visit. A really good gift shop too!

The Hall is only open limited hours, limited days, limited months, so don't just go along, check first. It is owned and run by the Roman Catholic diocese in Birmingham and manned by very helpful and enthusiastic volunteers. This does mean the quality of tour...More

Be aware that this property does not open until 11.30, the first guided tour starts at 12.00. We visited on a weekday towards the end of October and were quite surprised how busy it was. Essentially the key historical period is Elizabethan with a story...More

Harvington Hall is famous as it has more priest holes than anywhere else in the country. Following the English Reformation in the 16th century it was considered high treason for a catholic priest to be in England. The whole house is very interesting but we...More

We had a wonderful time at Harvington Hall. Our guide Jill was lovely and warm and it was fascinating to be shown around the house and rooms. We learnt many things from Jill, and it was moving seeing the priest hides. Learning about life back...More

We visited on a Groupon voucher and opted to take the free guide at noon. The hall opened at 11.30am so we started with a tea and cake in the cafe which was delicious and a good start to the day. There were only three...More

From London to Harvington Hall/Kidderminster (1 Replies)
Can someone please tell me where Kidderminster is & how to get there from London? Is it very far for a day trip? Has anyone ever visited Harvington Hall? I think it will be worth the trip if I can find out where it is! By the way, I do not have access to a car. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!
