Leighton Hall  image

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.

Leighton Hall can be found in the north of Lancashire, just outside Carnforth, a few miles from the city of Lancaster nestling in a bowl of parkland against a backdrop of English Lake District hills.

The Hall is open to the general public from 1st May to end of September, but pre-booked groups and private parties are welcome all year round. Parking is free.
