Weoley Castle is seldom open to the public as it is now managed by the Museum Department of Birmingham City Council and staffed entirely by volunteers. As it has been subject to substantial "vandalism" in the past, it is surrounded by by high metal fences,...More

We went to Weoley Castle as a fun Sunday out and were not disappointed! The £3 for a tour and bird of prey display was well worth it. Caroline, our guide, was friendly, funny and enthusiastic and made our visit even more enjoyable. We enjoyed...More

While Weoley castle has a public viewing area that is open almost every day of the year, this is behind a mesh fence and therefore not great. However throughout the year they hold events (check their website) where you can see the castle close up....More
