Without the use of Google we would never have known this existed!!! An excellent afternoon spent here in possibly one of the largest houses we have visited. We pretty much had a guide to ourselves. He was incredibly knowledgable and very friendly. We can heartedly recommend coming here to visit.

Lovely building if your into old buildings, not as many rooms open as there used to be, and now its a guided tour which is ok but not much time to really take in what each room has

Aston Hall, located just a few kilometres from Birmingham city centre, has something for everyone. Not only is this 17th century manor house beautiful, but you can learn lots about history in general as well as aspects of peoples’ lives over the centuries, including what they ate. The rooms are laid out immaculately and the staff are friendly, informative and... More

Although it is not near the city centre, it is worth making time to visit Aston Hall. This beautiful Jacobean-style building is a very nice place for history lovers. Also, its gardens and the nearby Aston Park provide pleasant walks.
