Built in 1600, Moseley Old Hall is home to an amazing tale; that of a future king fleeing for his life.

staffs moseley

In September 1651, following defeat at the Battle of Worcester, the future King Charles II hid from Cromwell's troops in an oak tree on the estate, before he was brought to hide in Moseley Old Hall. Visitors can still see the bed the King slept in, and the priest hole where he hid, as well as hearing fascinating stories about what life was like in the 17th century.

Why not visit the stunning Knot Garden, or relax in the orchard and enjoy a light lunch or cream tea. Follow the Kings Wood Walk to discover the new tree hide, where young soldiers can climb and play hide and seek, just like King Charles II did with Cromwell's troops.

Treat yourself in the popular tea-room, with homemade cakes, light lunches, browse the second hand book shop and plant sales, or pick up a gift in the shop.
