Visit Adlington Hall
We’d love to see you!
Our home, architecture, gardens and history are here for you to enjoy. We welcome pre-booked private group visits 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 and the Number 10 bedroom.
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
During your visit, 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!
Our traditional tea room serves a delicious selection of teas and homemade scones for you to enjoy, after a pre-booked tour.
During our 2021 public open season, we were delighted to have the East Cheshire Hospice Volunteer Team in the Tea Room, where they prepared and served hot drinks and a range of homemade cakes, with ALL proceeds from Tea Room sales going directly to East Cheshire Hospice. We are delighted to confirm that Adlington Hall visitors and supporters of East Cheshire Hospice raised an amazing £1,823.61, just from the sales in the Adlington Hall Tea Room. Thank you to you all for visiting and supporting this fabulous cause.
We have accessible toilets in the Hall. However, wheelchair access to the Gardens is limited so please get in touch for more information.
We have ample free car parking in the grounds so you’ll have no problems reaching us.
Some lovely feedback we have received in 2021:
“Just to say thank you very much for a very enjoyable day yesterday. Thank you to our guide, Debbie who gave us some interesting information and for the afternoon tea which was just right. No one that I spoke to had ever been to the Hall before which I was surprised to hear as they are all relatively local. In my 42 years living just down the road I had been many times both with my children and grandchildren.
I was especially pleased to see the very good renovations to the Shell Cottage, whoever did them have made a brilliant job.”

“I just want to say thank you to you and your colleagues for an excellent afternoon at Adlington Hall. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Hall and the delicious tea. The tour guides were very good and interesting. We were lucky with the weather, too, and able to walk round the gardens as well.”

“I was part of a private party that enjoyed your grounds last Thursday afternoon. We had the run of the woods, the rose garden and maze.
It’s a fine location. The rose garden and maze are well-maintained, and the woodland walk is a maze of wonderful trees and pathways.”
