Herb Garden Café

We have indoor and outdoor seating, and even if you’re not visiting the house you can still pay a visit to our café.

Taking inspiration from our Elizabethan house and grounds you will find a superb range of gifts, great reads, historical souvenirs and tempting treats in the Blakesley Hall shop.

We also have an excellent range of affordable souvenirs aimed at schools and we offer a pre-ordered goody bag service.

Shop Online

The shop now also has an online shop where you can purchase a fantastic range of unique gifts and souvenirs and have them delivered straight to your door.

As well as getting a great gift, all shop purchases help to support Birmingham Museums Trust to continue to care for Birmingham’s unique collection and the delivery of our award winning education programme.
