Himley Hall is a commanding 18th Century building set amongst 180 acres of 'Capability' Brown landscaped parkland. Once the family home to the Earls of Dudley and host to royalty and high society, today it offers contemporary art and craft exhibitions during spring and summer, as well as prestigious conference facilities and guided tours. The Hall also provides a glamorous setting for civil wedding ceremonies and receptions and other special occasions.
Himley Park is now a premier events venue playing host to a variety of outdoor events from garden plant fairs and classic vehicle shows to the breathtaking Himley Fireworks display. Visitors may participate in golf, pitch and putt, fishing, orienteering, sailing or just simply a peaceful stroll around the park and picnic. The park is now visited by over 200,000 visitors each year.
