Overview
More
Aston Hall is a magnificent seventeenth century red-brick mansion situated in a picturesque public park on the north side of Birmingham. Built between 1618 and 1635 for Sir Thomas Holte and home to James Watt Junior from 1817-1848, Aston Hall is steeped in history. The last conventional Jacobean house erected in England, which today features fine 17th-century architectural detail including plasterwork, woodwork and chimneypieces. Now a grade I listed building, the hall is restored to its former Jacobean splendor and is hugely popular with visitors of all ages. Walk through the stunning interiors and see the home that received royalty, was besieged during the English Civil War and inspired an author. Enjoy peaceful, picturesque grounds and cakes, snacks, and hot drinks available in the cafe.

We've visited Aston Hall many times in the past, but this was the first time as part of a guided tour and we were really impressed. The tour guides were really friendly and hospitable, and above all they really knew their stuff about Aston Hall....More

Most of the building isn't how it was in its day but some of it still stands today . Some of it has been modernised. The tour guides tell you loads of the history of the building very interesting to listen to

Over the years I have visited here many times, but never tire of going there. Make sure you check the website before visiting as sometimes the Hall is shut due to football at Villa Park, or private events.

A handsome house in an imposing situation, lovely grounds too. The Christmas Event was atmospheric and the actors were engaging and interacted well with the visitors. Be prepared to wear warm clothes when you visit, brrr, cold!

I went with my family including 2 young children and it was beautiful. The people dressed up in costume were really friendly and informative. It was a perfect way to start Christmas and I felt proud to be a brummy! Thanks Aston hall more candles...More

Disappointed in this visit. Went for Aston Hall by Candlelight. Didn't feel there was any atmosphere. Not really seasonal. Couple of demonstrations but nothing else. Coffee shop service was poor.

I wouldn't have thought so, but I'm sure if you call ahead they may be able to arrange translators.
