The beautiful Elizabethan house is one of the oldest buildings in Birmingham and is a typical example of Tudor architecture. It was built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a member of one of Birmingham’s leading merchant families, and was designed to show the wealth and status of the owner.
The traditional herb garden, orchard and grounds are a peaceful haven for visitors, and for butterflies and birds! At Blakesley Hall we have created a herb garden similar to the one we think the Smalbroke family would have had in Tudor times. It is home to a wide variety of plant species, all with their own unique histories and uses.
