Himley Hall, situated between Kingswinford and Wombourne, started life in the 18th century when a medieval manor house on the site belonging to the Earl of Dudley was demolished to make way for a great Palladian mansion. The 180 acres of grounds were designed by Capability Brown to include a great lake fed by a series of waterfalls from a higher chain of smaller pools.
Himley Park is enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year and the grounds are the setting for a variety of events throughout the year.
Himley Park is a premier events venue playing host to a variety of outdoor events from garden plant fairs, craft fayres and British Mini Day to fun runs and classic vehicle shows and the Himley Fireworks display. Sailing and fishing on the Great Lake and golf on the adjacent 9 hole golf course are some of the sporting pastimes on offer at Himley.
Visitors may participate in golf, pitch and putt, fishing, orienteering, sailing or just simply a peaceful stroll around the park and picnic. The park is now visited by over 200,000 visitors each year.
