This hidden gem is a great way to spend the day exploring the past with dedicated and friendly staff giving a great insight. A great cafe is worth the visit on its own. A must see hidden gem.

I have lived, for the vast majority of my life, within about a mile and a half of Blakesley Hall. It's probably for that reason that I never actually bothered visiting. At the insistence of my partner, we finally booked tickets, and took her dad...More

We came to Blakesley Hall as part of Birmingham Heritage Week 2018. Prior to our tour of the hall itself, we went to the café for 'lunch.' Total disaster - as one of us is gluten-free, nothing that was available was acceptable; all that was...More

Blakesley Hall is a delightful surprise in the midst of a rather "ordinary suburb". It is a reminder that Birmingham is, like many large cities, an amalgamation of various small agricultural villages. Comparatively recently it has had a "make over" with the construction of a...More

Entry is to visitor centre and gardens is free (except on certain event days) so you are welcome to come and take photos in the gardens. There is a fee to go inside the Hall.
