A large village, Hagley is best-known for the Palladian mansion Hagley Hall that was built for George, 1st Lord Lyttleton, in the late 18th century. In the panelled Barrel Room two of the gunpowder plotters were caught before being hung, draw and quartered. In the splendid 350-acre landscaped park surrounding the house are Gothic ruins, an Ionic temple and a rotunda. The Hall is now exclusively used for events such as conferences and themed events. Nearby is a popular falconry centre.
