Yearly visitor here. Always something to do in the gardens and there's always something to be learnt inside. Don't let this treasure of Birmingham evade you any longer. A must see place for children and adults alike.

Thank you very much for your lovely review, it must have been fascinating for you to see the differences between Blakesley 40 years ago and today. Perhaps by your next visit we will have made more changes!

If you are interested in historical buildings and social history then a visit to Blakesley Hall is a must. It's a marvellous example of an Elizabethan farmhouse, complete with contemporary artefacts. We had a guided tour of the house, which lasted about an hour, and...More
