The ruins of an exquisite manor house built 750 years ago.

The ruins of Weoley Castle are over 750 years old and are the remains of a fortified manor house built as a hunting lodge by the Lords of Dudley. The castle once stood within a thousand acres of deer park which extended almost as far as the city centre. 

The ruins are one of the oldest buildings still visible in Birmingham, and is classified as a scheduled Ancient Monument of national importance.

It was called a castle because it had a moat, curtain wall, towers, battlements and arrow slits as well as an imposing gatehouse and impressive great hall. 

There were also private rooms for the lords and ladies of the manor and a kitchen with a large fireplace for cooking. The family had their own chapel and stable range with lodging rooms above, and there was a large brewhouse for beer production.

Although often referred to as a castle, these ruins are the remains of a medieval manor house, once surrounded by a wide, water filled moat.

Visit the Birmingham Museums website for details of special events such as the annual Medieval Open Day.
