Visit Adlington Hall

We’d love to see you!

Our home, architecture, gardens and history are here for you to enjoy. We offer public open days on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays during April to September or you are more than welcome to pre-book a private group visit at any time throughout.

Visits to the House

The highlight of any visit to the house is The Great Hall. Here you’ll find the Great Organ, arguably one of England’s most important 17th century musical instrument. Other rooms open to visitors during guided tours include the beautiful oak-panelled dining room, the chapel, the Minstrels’ Gallery, the Chinese room, the Number 10 bedroom, and the old nursery.

The rooms all display original furniture alongside paintings and portraits that bring to life the story of the house and its occupants. Definitely worth a visit!

Visits to the Gardens

On public open days, you can wander around our gardens and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. Depending on when you visit, there are seasonal treats in store… the carpet of bluebells that comes into bloom in May, or the sights and smells of The Rose Garden in the summer. If you’re up for a bit of fun, the Maze poses a challenge for adults and children alike!

Tea Room

Our traditional tea room serves a delicious selection of teas and fresh homemade cakes for you to enjoy. It‘s open on public days, but we can also make arrangements if you’d like to join us after a pre-booked tour.

Disabled Facilities

We have accessible toilets in both the Hall and The Hunting Lodge, where there is also a lift. However, wheelchair access to the House and Gardens is limited so please get in touch for more information.

Car Parking

We have ample free car parking in the grounds so you’ll have no problems reaching us.

Some lovely feedback we have received:

On behalf of Cheshire Gardens Trust I would like to thank you all for making our visit yesterday so enjoyable. The weather was quite perfect but even if it had been raining I think we would have enjoyed it just the same.
Please send special thanks to Anthony, who is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and managed our quite large group with consummate skill and charm. It is the most difficult thing to keep to time, give a comprehensive tour and not seem to hurry anyone along. And then there is the amazing progress that has been made uncovering the beauty of the Wilderness -it looked absolutely stunning in the sunshine.
Also do convey our appreciation to the two tour guides of the house. I had quite a few comments to the effect that people liked the pace of the tour, we had plenty of time to really look at the rooms and take in all the detailed information about the architecture and history.
Finally of course the teas! We were served politely of efficiently with delicious cakes and scones, and what a good idea to put some tables outside.
best wishes
