If you are into your history and architecture this is a great place to visit. When you first arrive in the area you would not think this beautiful building is here.

A friend and I visited Aston Hall on a recent trip to Birmingham. We found out about it on the Internet and it was highly recommended. We were very excited for our tour and I have to say, we weren't disappointed. It is in a great location, not difficult to find. The tour guides were very helpful and we were... More

Near to my house. I go there everyday. Never think of giving a review lol. It was like why would I review my home. But anyway if you're interested visiting you're welcome worth a visit.

We found this place based on TripAdvisor reviews, and as you would hope, it was definitely worth it! What a fabulous taste of history in Birmingham! There were volunteers throughout much of it and you could tell that they all loved this place. Hearing the stories and history from the volunteers really brought it to life and made the trip...

My husband and I went to Aston Hall, a beautiful Jacobean House, built originally for Thomas Holte, between 1618 and 1638, set in lovely gardens/park quite near to Birmingham city centre. The tour today was lead by a very informative guide dressed in costume as King Charles 1. King Charles 1 did in fact, stay in Aston Hall in 1642... More

We joined the special tour and was taken around by 'King Charles 1'. As I am disabled I was concerned as to how much I would be able to see but with the help of the Staff, especially Steve, I was able to see most of the building. There are some great pictures and the history of the building is... More

The house is wonderful inside, with exceptional pargeting (designs in plaster) on the walls and ceilings, and great oak floors and panelling. Birmingham Museums (who run it) had made a good effort to explain the history with signage and volunteers on hand. The gardens were wonderful too. Easy parking nearby and only £6 to get in (for seniors). Well recommended.

This is a lovely old home with interesting history and lots to see inside. The day I went it wasn't crowded at all and so I got to take my time and see the house and the beautiful gardens. I took the public bus from downtown and walked to the house, it was very easy. (Even had the same bus... More
