Group Visits

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. Now a grade I listed building, the hall is restored to its former Jacobean splendour.

The hall is also home to Lady Holte’s Garden. The garden is the South Garden for Aston Hall and is surrounded by brick walls, which were ordered by Sir Thomas Holte in 1637. The garden is designed in symmetrical patterns with historic shrubs and foliage and was meant to be beautiful and peaceful. It also served the purpose of impressing guests who visited Aston Hall in the past.
