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.

Wow, this is a truly splendid building, preserved beautifully and well worth a visit for any history buff. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable, and whilst you can wander around freely, I would recommend a guided tour to get the most from it.

The guides and volunteers bring the Hall to life with their stories. Much to see in the house with rooms set up as they were 400 years ago. Watch out for special events; the Whodunnit was brilliant. In winter gets a bit chilly with no...More

We had a great time interviewing suspects around the hall to find out "whodunnit" A fantastic way to see a beautiful building, the characters were brilliant at engaging the children and answering endless questions.

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