  • Precooked our tickets. Good size car park. Narrow lanes to get here but well signed Lady on gate very friendly and helpful. She had the worst job sitting there in the cold and rain checking people.....  more »
  • Because of covid restrictions the Hall is currently closed and the grounds are somewhat limited in size so any visit is likely to be a short one. However, there is a pleasant walk to be had through...  more »
  • We drove for an hour to arrive here, as a NT member we get in for free, but on this occasion it is exceptionally poor value for money, we normally spend longer than average at NT sites, but we were...  more »

  • Enjoyed our visit very much. Excellent tour guide who brought the hall to life with her history and colourful descriptions of King Charles and all the historical characters. Delicious cakes and coffees in the cafe. All the staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful. Have recommended a visit to several friends.
  • The place itself is very interesting and informative and the gardens are very beautiful. The only thing that hit me as a surprise was the entrance fee for my family. I know you are bound by The National Trust pricing and I know it must cost a fortune to run / maintain the property but this place is in near to Wolverhampton where the wage demographic on average is normally quite low. If you want more local visitors / donations from all types of backgrounds it might be worth looking at your pricing strategy.
  • Relaxed friendly and informative. It's worth taking some time to hear what the guides say in the house or let them tell you stories about it. Nice gardens to relax in. The tree house/hide is great for kids.
  • Had a very pleasant day out at Moseley Old Hall. The welcome we received was excellent as was the tour around the house. Had a picnic so only had a coffee from.the tea shop which was very good. All in all, highly recommended.
  • I really enjoyed my visit. The staff recreated a period of history I knew very little about and showed they had lots of knowledge when asked a large variety of questions by different people. They were a brilliant team. Such a nice day out. 10 out of 10 rating
