Aston HallCurrently Open [Closes at 04:00 pm]
Aston Hall is one of Birmingham city’s most beloved treasures. Designed and built almost 400 years ago, it boasts striking interiors from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. This is the closest one can actually get to experiencing what England was like so many years ago. After a major renovation was completed in 2009, it is now maintained as a community museum by the Birmingham Museums Trust.
Aston Hall boasts a series of period rooms, which have furniture, paintings, textiles and metalwork from different eras of early Britain. Almost as famous as the hall itself, are the adjoining gardens and grounds. While entry into the Aston Hall requires a ticket, one can spend as much time as they want in the gardens without being bothered. It provides for a blissfully idyllic atmosphere, and coupled with the royal Aston Hall in the background, it makes for a very pretty picture.
The architecture retains its 17th century style, which greatly contributes to the status of Aston Hall as a Grade 1 heritage monument.
Visiting performance artists often put up small shows in the Aston Hall gardens. Depending on your luck, you could catch a young musician strumming away on his guitar or even a gymnastic troupe in full flow!

Aston Hall Reviews & Ratings
nice park which houses Aston Hall. It's a nice park to take the kids to. Wall as off is Lady holtes garden and the park has a large drive way in it for access to the house. There is a play area for the kids as well. nice to visit after you have been round the house and you can use the halls cafe situated in the stable area
Love it here, its a joy to walk the dog round the grounds of the Aston Hall, with all its history, even though its surrounded by busy roads on 2 sides, its still a little bit of peace and open open space. Usually well kept, and not too busy, but just a few visitors attended events at rhe actual Hall when its open, makes its just not too isolated, but peaceful enough.
Fantastic museum all the rooms have original furniture and staff have so much knowledge to share. Fantastic for all ages.
I remember playing here as a child. I'm 51 now and I.have fond memories hence the high score. I played there. My children played there and now.my grandchildren
Have visited this place for over 70 years. Still a lovely place with free parking adjacent to Aston hall. There are admission charges to hall but we'll worth a visit. A fabulous building inside and out.
