Selly Manor

Maple Road Bournville Birmingham B30 2AE

A beautiful half-timbered building dating back to the 1300s, this was the Tudor manor home of a local tax collector before falling into disrepair. It was later acquired by famous chocolatier George Cadbury in 1907, whose restoration of the manor saw it returned to its original beauty. Selly Manor became a museum to Tudor living in 1916 with guided tours and has been welcoming visitors to step in under the oak beams ever since. Inside you'll find antiquated furniture (some of it dating back to the 16th century) together with all the accoutrements that made a Tudor home. Steeped in history, and set within stunning grounds, Selly Manor also affords gentle walks conducive to re-imagining the lives of those who would have ambled through the herb garden seven centuries ago.
