Weoley Castle Ruins
Join us for a guided tour of Weoley Castle Ruins and learn of the importance of this hidden piece of Birmingham’s medieval past.
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. It was called a castle because it had all the features of a castle: 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
The ruins are one of the oldest buildings still visible in Birmingham and is classified as a Scheduled Ancient Monument of national importance.
