Overview

One of Lancashire's most historic halls set in the beautiful park of the same name. The history of the Hall itself is full of intrigue, with stories of plotting and religious turmoil. It dates back to Elizabethan times with changes and additions over the centuries, all helping make a visit to the Hall a fascinating and enjoyable experience. This grade 1 listed building is the jewel in Chorley's crown, with stunning plaster work and architectural features. As the town's museum and art gallery it is also home to items of local historical interest. William Shakespeare and Oliver Cromwell are some of the famous guests to stay at the hall.

Pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of the grounds and the hall. Considering this place is free to visit it is exceptional. How it can continue to operate without charging is a mystery. Would suggest a quality gift shop may help raise funds but well...More

Yes and no..... the grounds are accessible to dogs, but you cannot take dogs into the Hall, cafe or the additional buildings. I presume a Guide dog is exempt to this rule! There is outdoor seating at the cafe where I saw... More
