It is easy to spend a whole morning or afternoon at Aston Hall. It is a beautiful manor house in the Aston area of Birmingham, which was involved in the Civil War – you can still see the hole in one of the staircases where it was hit by a cannonball . It is fascinating to explore the rooms from the elegantly furnished rooms where entertaining would have been done, to the kitchens and servants quarters. The hall is reputed to be haunted by several ghosts, the most famous being the White Lady who haunts the upper floors.
Aston Hall also has a small tearoom, separate exhibition centre, and extensive gardens which are beautiful on a sunny day.
