About 3 miles north of the centre in Aston (of Aston Villa fame), this well-preserved hall was built in extravagant Jacobean style between 1618 and 1635. The lush grounds are a wonderful retreat from the city streets, and the sumptuous interiors are full of friezes, moulded ceilings and tapestries. To get to Aston Hall, take bus 65 or a train to Aston station from New St station.
