About Blakesley Hall Admission

A chance to explore Blakesley Hall, a fine Tudor house and beautiful gardens built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a member of one of Birmingham’s leading merchant families.

Take a step back in time and discover what life was like for this wealthy family during the Tudor time, when Elizabeth I was on the throne and Shakespeare was writing plays.

The house is furnished using the original inventory from the 17th century and highlights include the Great Parlour, the Great Hall and the Long Gallery. Amazingly, some of the building’s original features were only rediscovered when WWII bomb damage significantly impacted the hall and painstaking restoration work revealed previously hidden 16th-century paintings.

Pre-booking is advised.
