It dates back to the start of the 17th century, is one of the first stately homes to be taken over by a local authority and is still one of the most treasured properties of Birmingham City Council. If you visit Aston Hall today you'll find the wonderful old house and garden that are crammed with history. You can still see a hole in the staircase made by a roundhead cannonball, and the formal garden planted before a visit by King Charles I. Don't miss rooms full of period furniture and artwork, and the regular programme of family activities and all-year events.
