About

Aston Hall is a magnificent seventeenth century red-brick mansion situated in a picturesque public park on the north side of Birmingham. It is one of the  last great Jacobean houses to be built. 

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 hall received royalty, was besieged during the English Civil War and inspired an author.

Now a grade I listed building, the hall is restored to its former Jacobean splendour and is hugely popular with visitors of all ages. 

At the present time Aston Hall is open for special, pre-booked events only. Please see the What's On page for details of dates, events and prices.  The Hall is closed on all other days.
