An atmospheric Elizabethan farmhouse that saved a King

Find out about the dramatic story of King Charles II hiding from Cromwell’s troops at Moseley Old Hall after he fled the Battle of Worcester in 1651.

See the bed on which the King slept and the priest hole in which he hid, and hear fascinating stories about what life was like in the 17th-century. You can soak up the atmosphere on one of our popular guided tours.

A variety of 17th-century plants, a fruit orchard and a striking ‘knot’ garden adorn the graceful gardens.

Treat yourself in our very popular tea-room, with homemade cakes and biscuits or a light lunch. We've also got lots of events, activities and demonstrations for all the family.
