Leighton Hall

Award winning Leighton Hall is the lived-in house of the famous furniture making Gillow dynasty. A visit to Leighton is an opportunity to unravel the fascinating past of this ancient, Lancashire family, to wander through the spectacular grounds and pretty gardens and to witness breathtaking displays from trained birds of prey. As well as the house and grounds, Leighton has a children’s play area and caterpillar maze, plant conservatory and charming tea rooms.

On 1st May Leighton Hall opened its doors to the public to mark its 59th season.

Family visitors to the lived in home of the Gillow furniture making dynasty, can expect all the usual hospitality from the Gillow Reynolds family, as well as an exciting calendar of events for 2017.

Until September, the Hall is open on weekday afternoons Tuesdays to Fridays, Bank Holiday Sundays and Mondays, plus Sundays throughout August. During the course of the year Leighton facilitates fund raising events for Red Cross, Parkinsons and CancerCare. In July, Leighton plays host to the annual Classic Car Rally, along with the al fresco performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor on Leighton’s lawns. In August there are extra activities for children, including the free Teddy Bear Treasure Hunt. The final special event of the year is the Motorcycle Hill Climb.

Each year, they try and add something new to their family offering.  Last year they upgraded all of the children’s outdoor play facilities and this year they’ve more events than ever before.  Of course all of their family favourites are still there, including the birds of prey flying displays, house tours, tea rooms, gardens and parkland.

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 child friendly and entertaining guides and encouraged to sit on the furniture, touch things and really get involved.

Weddings are a special event at Leighton Hall, to find out how you can get married in style there please visit their website or give them a call on 01524 734474.
