Group Visits

Blakesley Hall is a striking timber-framed house set amidst a fragrant herb garden and orchard.

A remarkable survival in an urban setting, Blakesley Hall was built in 1590 for up and coming Birmingham merchant Richard Smalbroke. It is an excellent example of an attractive and comfortable home with impressive features such as the uneven Long Gallery, the lavish decorative framing and fine painted cloths. See the wattle and daub panels, climb the twisty old staircase and marvel at the elaborately carved wooden furniture. Discover the atmospheric Painted Chamber with its tester bed and 400 year old wall paintings.

Uncover the fascinating history of the Hall and enjoy the grounds with traditional garden games and our new garden trail.
