About Blakesley Hall

Blakesley Hall is a picture-perfect timber-framed Tudor house, dating from a time when when Elizabeth I was on the throne and Shakespeare was writing his plays.

Set amidst a striking herb garden and orchard, Blakesley Hall is a unique and inspiring venue for meetings, parties and away days. Just 5 miles away from the city centre, with excellent parking facilities and transport links, the Hall provides a unique and historic setting for a wide variety of events.
