Castle Bromwich Hall

Nowadays a hotel, Castle Bromwich Hall was a mansion built in 1599 by Sir Edward Devereaux. The Jacobean original was extensively changed by Sir John Bridgeman in 1657, changes included adding the third storey. His son extended the mansion further. The Bridgemans continued to live in the mansion until 1936.

The building was used for storage and later a training centre for GEC. Next to the hall is Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens, an 18th century style English formal garden.
