    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Blakesley Hall is an Elizabethan farmhouse within the city of Birmingham, it is one of the few black and white timber-framed buildings left standing in the city and was built in 1590 for Richard Smalbroke junior, who wanted to reflect his growing prosperity with a new and comfortable home. The Hall now belongs to the City of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and vast restoration work has recently been completed.

    Blakesley Hall

    Blakesley Hall is a late Tudor timber framed farmhouse built in 1590. I haven't been here since it underwent a massive restoration project in 2002 but it was enjoyable then so I'm certain it will be even more interesting now.

    There is a visitor centre, tearoom and shop. They hold regular events where staff dress up in 16th Century costume. If you call +44 (0)121 464 2193 you can speak with someone at Blakesley Hall who will advise of upcoming events.
