Hoghton Tower

Set in magnificent grounds, situated 650 ft above sea level and approached by a steep, straight 0.75 mile long drive is Hoghton Tower, a 16th-century Elizabethan fortified manor-house. The ancestral home of the de Hoghton family, Hoghton Tower has been a part of Lancashire’s landscape since 1565. Join a guided tour of the panelled state rooms to hear about the history of the house, the family and the distinguished guests who have enjoyed the Tower over the centuries.

Stroll through the beautiful walled gardens and take in the views. Kids will love the underground passages, the ramparts, dungeons and Dolls House collection. Take a browse in the gift shop and finish your day out in the tea room. Private Tours and School Tours available throughout the year with prior appointment. On the third Sunday of each month, come to our Farmers Market – ‘The Merchant of Hoghton’- a celebration of regional produce.

Hoghton Tower offers absolute exclusivity for wedding receptions, private functions and conferences in the great Banqueting Hall. The Irishman’s Tower provides luxury accommodation for two in these historic surroundings. All income raised benefits the Hoghton Tower Preservation Trust – preserving heritage for all
