There are over 30 rooms to explore at Aston Hall including King Charles’ Chamber, the elaborate Great Stairs, and the breath-taking Long Gallery - hailed as one of Britain’s finest.
One of the last great houses built in the Jacobean style.
Discover Aston Hall’s experience during the English Civil War, and how you can still see evidence of this tumultuous time in the house! In October 1642 (two months after Charles I declared war on his parliament and their supporters) Sir Thomas Holte was honoured with a visit by King Charles I as he made his way south from Shrewsbury where he had been raising troops to serve the Royalist cause. Shortly after leaving Aston Hall the king’s army was engaged in one of the first big battles at Edgehill. Aston Hall itself was attacked in December 1643 by a Parliamentarian force from Coventry. A hole in the staircase was made by a cannonball when the house was under siege.
Aston Hall has been named one of the most haunted buildings in the UK. It has many ghost stories to tell, some of which date back to the 17th century and the actions of the Hall’s first resident, Sir Thomas Holte.
Marvellous Grade 1 Jacobean mansion - everyone coming to Birmingham must visit this beautiful house.Reviewer, Trip Advisor
