Selly Manor is a beautiful Tudor manor in the heart of historic Bournville. Alongside the medieval hall of Minworth Greaves, together these are two of Birmingham's oldest buildings and are surrounded by a lovely cottage garden. The museum is home to the Laurence Cadbury Collection of period furniture and domestic objects which bring these timber-framed buildings to life. The museum offers a range of exhibitions, talks and tours, special events, children's activities and is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies.

Our visit to this beautifully restored and furnished medieval building was a joy. We were made most welcome by the friendly and well-informed volunteers and spent a happy couple of hours there.

This is a small but very historic house which Cadbury thankfully saved from ruin by moving it to Bournville. Though there is not enough here for more than an hour's visit it is beautiful to see and the collection of early furniture is very interesting....More

This faithfully restored house and garden. If you're looking around Bournville or you've put up with the madness of Cadbury World, it's a nice, quiet diversion that's very close by.

A little bit of history set in a busy suburb of Birmingham, close to Cadburys factory and Cadbury World. Uneven floors, tiny rooms, all make this place fascinating.More
