Leighton Hall

Award winning Leighton Hall is the lived-in home of the famous Gillow furniture making dynasty. A visit to Leighton is an opportunity to unravel the fascinating past of this ancient, Lancashire family, to wander through the pretty gardens and woodland walk and to witness breath taking displays from birds of prey. As well as the house and grounds and charming tea rooms, Leighton has a children’s play area with brass rubbings, bee corner, insect hotel, tree face trail and caterpillar maze.


Leighton Hall is famous for its Objets d’art, stunning pieces of Gillow furniture and has no roped off areas. Visitors are welcomed at the front door by friendly and entertaining guides, and tours are informal with guests encouraged to sit on the furniture, touch things and really get involved.


In August there are extra activities for children, including a free Teddy Bear Hunt and Craft Corner.


Take time to explore the acres of gardens, ornamental vegetable plot and herb garden pavilion, within an abundant 19th century walled garden, before finishing your day with a visit Leighton’s charming tearooms.

Birds of prey fly every open day (Summer season only, weather permitting) at 3:30pm.


Open May – September 2pm – 5pm Check website for details.

All Tickets are to be booked in advance online
