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.

Thirty years ago we visited this Hall and the grounds were full of heavy machinery the grounds being renovated. Where the lovely lake with swans and Fountain is was just a massive hole in the earth. So it was a pleasant surprise to see the nice landscaping. Checked out the Hall again---this time though it was gift wrapped for Christmas!... More

This building is always amazing to wonder round and find all the hidden rooms in the hall. Only thing I could suggest is to put on a few more tours so that people who come to visit chorley have more of a chance of finding out about our heritage.

What a beautiful building with extensive parkland for all the family. Well done to Chorley council for keeping this stunning historical building free to visit, making it a lovely day out for the whole family. There is a brilliant WW1 exhibition which is moving to see but a must to visit. The cafe/restaurant provides a good range of reasonably priced... More

The long bay windows of the front are particularly impressive,interior rooms have fantastic moulded ceilings and good panelling. There's usually a good exhibition and don't forget... More
