Discover a real Tudor house just outside the centre of Birmingham. Blakesley Hall was built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke to show off his wealth, and the fact it's still standing after all these years means the house did its job!
Children will enjoy the house looking just as it did in Tudor times, from the family dining room to the canopy beds in the beautiful bedrooms, and to the much less pretty kitchen where the harder work was done by servants for not very much money.
The team at Blakesley Hall have worked hard to make sure that the garden is almost exactly as the Tudors would have had it! Flowers and herbs grow by a traditional orchard which attracts butterflies and birds.
Blakesley Hall runs a variety of family activities which are very regular in the summer holidays, helping children to learn about the history of the Hall and to get them engaged with the past.
