Celebrate Birmingham Heritage Week with a visit to Blakesley Hall. Explore this fine Tudor house and beautiful gardens built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a member of one of Birmingham’s leading merchant families. 

More than 400 years later, beautiful Blakesley is still a haven; secluded from the avenues of modern houses that lie beyond its gates. The house is furnished using an inventory taken in the 17th century and reflects the lifestyle of a wealthy family of the late Tudor and Stuart period of English history.

A visit to the Hall also includes a chance to enjoy the traditional herb garden and orchard, a haven for butterflies and birds.

Your safety is our highest priority, so to manage capacity and facilitate social distancing we are operating a timed entrance to the Hall. 

Pre-booking is essential. Book tickets online.

This event is not free for members.

Blakesley Hall is open from 12pm to 4pm, with the last timed entrance to the Hall at 3.30pm.

Blakesley Hall will feel a little different to usual, but we are sure you will enjoy your visit and look forward to welcoming you. Our Herb Garden Cafe will be open from 12pm to 4pm but seating capacity will be reduced. Staff on site will be wearing PPE or working behind perspex screens, we have enhanced cleaning schedules in place, and we will be asking you to observe social distancing guidelines at all times whilst on site. We are only accepting contactless payments (no cash accepted).  Please remember to bring a face covering for use in our indoor spaces.

Birmingham Museums Trust is a registered charity and money raised through events like this help us care for beautiful buildings like Blakesley Hall.
