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.

Beautifully restored old stately home with magnificent ceilings in the main reception rooms. Interesting selection of furnishings all set in a superb park and with an interesting walled garden at the rear.

It's a huge park with quite good playing areas and indoor and outdoor cafe. The lake view was nice. The kids spent great time there and keep asking for more visits!

Sorry the answer is late but yes dogs were in the grounds but kept on leads due to the children's and pets areas. Didn't notice any in the Hall.
