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

The restoration work done on the property and grounds is great considering it survived the civil war and the blitz. Staff was lovely but clearly have great difficulties like most museums and historical properties in Birmingham poor management, feeble budgets and no strategies. Heavily understaffed yet they are such stars doing their work with great dignity. We cycled there from... More

The external house is very ornate Jacobian style. The internals are furnished with relevant furniture. Trails for children aged 3 plus. Helpful guides keen to tell you what they know including ghost stories but not overbearing. The exhibitions we had visited last time which out the building into context didn't seem to be open and there were no hands-on stuff... More

This Jacobean mansion is vast but with help of guides with their stories it was transported into a living breathing home. So much original and contemporary architecture and decoration. Very well presented with child friendly approach. Thought it was very good value. Tea shop offers the basics. So glad we didn't miss this one.

This is a great place to visit for all the family and in such an unexpected place. It has great history, the building is astonishingly beautiful and you can spend all day in the grounds, gardens and coffee shop. I would highly recommend this as a place to visit

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.
