A special guided exploration of Aston Hall’s gardens and grounds.
Aston Hall is a spectacular Jacobean Manor House just a few miles from Birmingham City Centre. An oasis of calm in the busy city, with 400 years of history, join us for a very special guided tour of the hall.
When the Hall was first opened as a museum, natural history was a core part of the ‘cabinet of curiosities’, which was a public museum. Join our Natural Science Curator for an exploration of what was on display and where they came from. Many came from Richard Weaver’s collection, so this will be a good opportunity to learn more about one of Birmingham’s earliest museums!
Pre-booking is essential, we anticipate that this event will be popular. Tickets are non-refundable.
Natural History tours start at 11.00am and 1.00pm and will last approximately 1 hour. It will be possible to visit to the hall for a self-guided visit after (or before) your tour; your ticket price includes entry to the hall.
Please note that most of the rooms featured on this tour are accessed by climbing stairs (there is no lift at Aston Hall). It may not be possible to join a tour if it has already begun.
Birmingham Museums Trust is a registered charity and money raised through visiting helps us care for beautiful buildings like Aston Hall.
