Aston Hall has watched proudly over Birmingham for more than 400 years – not only is it one of the last great houses built in the Jacobean style, it’s also said to be one of the most haunted buildings in the UK. Designed by John Thorpe and built by Sir Thomas Holte between 1618 to 1635, it is packed to the rafters with architectural gems and historical treasures.
If you’re a school with over 30% free school meals, you can benefit from our amazing special offer of buy-one-get-one-free on workshops! (if booked for the same day). Apply using the red ‘apply now’ button below.
Subject to availability – trips must be taken in May, June or July 2023.
Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
We’ll discuss how the fire started and discover why the flames spread so quickly and how they were eventually put out.
