Built around 1618, this was the last conventional Jacobean house erected in England, which today features fine 17th-century architectural detail including plasterwork, woodwork and chimneypieces.

We have visited Aston Hall many times and it is interesting for adults and children alike.Staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. Top tip visit at Christmas to see Aston Hall by candlelight and everyone dressed up in traditional dress to suit the period.

Really loved this place, the only thing that spoils it is too many guides standing around, would possibly be better off with just security system so people can roam at their leisure and don't feel rushed.More

Are there tours available on Sunday? I'm planning a visit for July 10. Is it possible to get a train from New St. Station? Once you get there, can you walk from the station to Aston Hall? If a take a taxi from the city center, how much could it cost?
