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.

A lovely park where there is always something happening especially in the summer. Don't miss Astley Hall ( check opening times) and visit Cafe Ambio. Great for all ages and for a slow ramble or energetic walk.

Beautifully restored hall sits proudly at the top of Astley Park. Ideal coffee shop and cafe next door in the courtyard. Overlooks restored lake with bird watching opportunities.

I love this park, it's ideal for waliking the dog. Chorley council deserve a pat on the back for keeping the park as clean and user friendly as they do.. It's a shame some dog users aren't as public spirited and are quite happy to...More

Great for walking and picnics in summer. Ducks to feed too and a great play area for kiddie. Also a zip wire which is recommended for kiddies but a bit off adult fun did us no harm. Get on it!

Yes there are proper paths through the park to all three entrances and the paths through the woods (Bluebells and daffodils and snowdrops depending on season ) are accessible too. We often see groups of mums pushing buggies... More

Sorry the answer is late but yes dogs were in the grounds but kept on leads due to the children's and pets areas. Didn't notice any in the Hall.
