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.

Astley park is amazing, very well maintained and with plenty of space to walk the dog, go for a walk with friends and have a delicious ice cream near the mini zoo or lunch at Ambio Cafe. Astley Hall is a lovely old place worth a visit too.

Love this place, all the old and wonderful furniture and the workmanship on the ceilings is amazing. This place is a photographers heaven, every where you turn there are photos to be snapped. I don't know if it is true, but it is rumoured Oliver Cromwell stayed over night once.

Outstanding building with a long history and well worth visiting. The park it is set in is also recommended along with Cafe Ambio for snacks or lunch.

The entertainment 'Spark' was so unusual, dancers illuminated in changing colours and fascinating to watch. I have never seen anything like it. We visit... More
