Aston Hall is managed by the Birmingham Museum Trust and staffed by BMT employees and volunteers. Normally, access is via a guided tour, which I was hoping for, but during half term, access is "free flow" - i.e. do it yourself. We were lucky enough to have an introduction and explanation of the ground floor rooms by Mike, a very... More

Very atmospheric and full of interest and certainly for history buffs. The candlelight was effective and surprisingly bright (there were lots of candles of course!). Roaring fires in the grate in the long hall and well worth a visit.

We unexpectedly had a guided tour by Stephen and Mick, two volunteers. They were knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. They showed us round this Jacobean mansion, told us the history and showed us the resident ghost!! Yes, there really is a ghost. It is a very interesting place, home of Thomas Holte and close to the Holte End of the Aston... More

We had an excellent visit to Aston Hall. The house is immaculate and it is full of history and interest. Both the interior and exterior are stunning. We were well informed by three lovely guides as we went around. Highly recommended. Thank you for a most enjoyable afternoon.
