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.
