Weoley Castle

Location: Weoley Castle, Birmingham

various; event days and pre-booked guided tours


Today there's a whole residential suburb of Birmingham called Weoley Castle but if you visit, you'll find that the area takes its name from one specific site. Weoley Castle is now an impressive stone ruin but you can still discover how this was once a grand moated medieval manor house. There has been a manor house here for an incredible 900 years and recently archaeologists have found treasures here to suggest the occupants were very wealthy. Visitors today can see the layout of the site from a special viewing platform. Weoley Castle is open every day and is free to enter.
