Selly Manor Museum is a superb example of a Tudor Manor House. The compact but well maintained grounds have three main areas which are the manor house itself, the hall which incorporates the ticket office and is perfect for group hire and a toilet block with accessible facilities. The building is one of the oldest in Birmingham and has much history associated with it. Group bookings and guided tours are welcomed by prior booking and the manor can be hired providing a beautiful setting for wedding functions.
