The most iconic image of the Hall is the beautiful half-timbered brown and white east front, but turn the corner, and the south front presents a real contrast. The four wings shelter a courtyard, where you can see the original inscription dating the building to 1581. You can also see the sturdy sixteenth century gatehouse doors, complete with holes used by the Royalist defenders as they aimed their muskets at the Parliamentarians in the Civil War. Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and come along to our gardens to experience it for yourself!
Adlington Hall’s gardens are an oasis of tranquillity. It’s thought that Charles Legh first landscaped the gardens in the 18th century, in the style of Capability Brown.
The Rose Garden
A feast of colour, rambler roses climb pillars and rope swags, framing formal rose beds planted with individual varieties of rose.
