The house boasts a series of period rooms with furniture, paintings and textiles from the collections of the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. There are over 30 rooms to explore including King Charles’ chamber, the elaborate great stairs and the breathtaking long gallery.

In October 2019 the mansion was named as the UK’s top haunted site according to the Spectrum Paranormal Investigations and the National Lottery.
Lady Holte’s Garden is situated on the south side of the house and it is a haven of peace and tranquility, full of colour and fragrance. They usually have family-friendly activities during the school holidays and host a range of events.
