The Crooked House – Himley


The Crooked House in Himley is a truly unique and quirky pub that is definitely worth visiting. Built in 1765, the building became a public house around 1830 and has since become famous for its unusual tilted structure. In fact, the building began sinking during the 19th century, resulting in the unusual and wonky appearance that it has today.

Despite its unusual appearance, The Crooked House is a warm and welcoming place that offers a great pub experience. The interior is cozy and full of character, with low ceilings, wooden beams, and plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. Visitors are sure to enjoy the atmosphere of the pub, which is both charming and slightly surreal.

One of the unique features of The Crooked House is the opportunity to roll marbles up-hill. This is an experience that is not to be missed, and adds to the quirky and fun nature of the pub. However, the virtual tour on Google does not do justice to the real experience of visiting, so it is highly recommended to visit in person.

The Crooked House is a must-visit for anyone in the area. Its unusual structure, cozy interior, and fun features make it a pub experience that is unlike any other.
