We had an excellent visit to Aston Hall. The house is immaculate and it is full of history and interest. Both the interior and exterior are stunning. We were well informed by three lovely guides as we went around. Highly recommended. Thank you for a most enjoyable afternoon.

During winter can only be visited by guided tour. Tours scheduled to last approx 1.5hrs but ours was over 2hrs, two excellent guides. Very knowledgeable regarding history of the building and civil war. Well worth the visit.

We visited the Christmases of the Past event and enjoyed it thoroughly. The staff were friendly when greeting us and we were told where to find all the facilities. We were then shown into the main hall where we all sang Christmas Carols with the minstrel band which was a nice warm up to start with and it brought our... More

We took a standard tour of this massive Jacobean mansion, which was a good way to learn about the Civil War, when there was fighting in and around the property. A guide is essential and included in the entry price - ours iwas very friendly and knowledgeable.

I love visiting here I've been many times even hallowe'en when it's lit by candle light. It can be creepy never fails to bore me and the cafe in the stable is a must if you visit. Lots of ground to walk round also not for wheelchair use unless you stay on ground floor and some stairs make it hard... More

Sitting in what now is really the inner city this is a brilliant Jacobean Home in beautiful condition. It is a must visit but look out for the special events - if they are on - like the candle-lit events. They once did a brilliant Victorian Christmas.

First time I've been here and attended the Fright night on Sunday 30th October. The stately home is very impressive from the outside and within. This is the first time I've been to a 'fright night' at a stately home and was looking forward to it. The staff were great and the actors fabulous - their costumes very frightening. Unfortunately,...

We attended Sunday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our group had about 35 in it and no one ruined the atmosphere with mobiles or photographs, our guide had made it quite clear this was not permitted. It was great fun and I can honestly say I was a complete wimp! I screamed the whole time, the staff were very entertaining... More
