Aston Hall

Follow in the footsteps of royalty and visit one of the last great Jacobean houses to be built.

Aston Hall is a magnificent seventeenth century red-brick mansion situated in a picturesque public park on the north side of Birmingham.

Built between 1618 and 1635 for Sir Thomas Holte and home to James Watt Junior from 1817-1848, Aston Hall is steeped in history.

Now a grade I listed building, the hall is restored to its former Jacobean splendor and is hugely popular with visitors of all ages.

Walk through the stunning interiors and see the home that received royalty, was besieged during the English Civil War and inspired an author.

Discover Aston Hall’s experience during the English Civil War, and how you can still see evidence of this tumultuous time in the house! In October 1642 (two months after Charles I declared war on his parliament and their supporters) Sir Thomas Holte was honoured with a visit by King Charles I as he made his way south from Shrewsbury where he had been raising troops to serve the Royalist cause. Shortly after leaving Aston Hall the king’s army was engaged in one of the first big battles at Edgehill. Aston Hall itself was attacked in December 1643 by a Parliamentarian force from Coventry. A hole in the staircase was made by a cannonball when the house was under siege.
