While Weoley castle has a public viewing area that is open almost every day of the year, this is behind a mesh fence and therefore not great. However throughout the year they hold events (check their website) where you can see the castle close up. This was a pre-booked evening visit costing £10 that included a tour of the castle... More

There's no doubting this is a wonderful ruin, well preserved and on a lovely largely flat area that would be easily accessible and enjoyable to all. However, you can't actually get to it.

There's more there than you think! A very atmospheric oasis, hidden away in the middle of an urban housing estate! Look out for great free and very cheap family events. The falconry event in September is fantastic.
