Astley Hall Museum and Art Gallery

Surrounded by stunning parkland, the iconic Astley Hall boasts over 400 years of history. This breath-taking Grade-1 listed house offers fascinating insights into the families who called it home and the people who worked there. For history buffs, Astley Hall is furnished with some of the most impressive ornate plaster ceilings and English oak furniture from the 1800s in the country. 

Whether it’s a woodland walk, respite in the Walled Garden, an adventure in the play area, bowls on the sports pitch, refreshments in the Coach House café, or one of the many exhibitions or activities delivered throughout the year – there’s something for everyone! 

With an exciting future ahead, the Hall is currently undergoing the most extensive renovations in recent history. Plans to restore the exterior and enhance the visitor experience means the Hall is currently closed to visitors. However, its gardens and surrounding parkland are open for all to explore and enjoy.
