None of us wanted to leave - It was all so delightful!

These commendations reassure you of a top quality day out at an attraction that has been welcoming coach parties and groups for over 40 years.
A trip to Leighton Hall gives your group, access to beautiful Gillow furniture grounds and gardens for an afternoon stroll, entertaining and fascinating house tours, breath taking flying displays from birds of prey and delicious homemade cakes and plenty of tea served how it should be in “real” tea cups, in our charming tea rooms.
So much more than a historic house, Leighton Hall has no roped off areas and visitors really get involved, sit on the furniture, play the piano, climb the stairs and enjoy their tour without being asked not to touch.
We regularly welcome pre booked parties of 25 or more. We give your coach driver free entry to the hall, a free meal and perhaps most importantly free and ample parking in our coach park. We haven’t forgotten about the Group Organisers either. We provide you with a free tour of the Hall when you bring your group to us.
Drop off your party right outside our front door, relax, and let our friendly and enthusiastic guides do the rest.
A day out in the country yet only 5 miles from the M6, we offer 3 themed packages, so whether you’ve a fondness for flora or a passion for the past, there’s a fulfilling package for you.
How to get here:
By Car: 10 minutes drive from M6, exit 35. Leighton Hall is signposted with brown tourism signs from the M6 junction on the A6
If using Satnav, our postcode is LA5 9ST, however we strongly recommend that once you have reached the A6, you follow the brown tourism signs as satnavs can be inaccurate from here on.
By Coach: Follow directions as above, but rather than taking the signed route off the A6 up Dykes Lane, continue a few 100 yards along the A6 to the next left up Roseacre Lane - signed 'Leighton Coaches'. At the end turn left, up the hill where you will pick up the brown tourism signs again. You are only 5 minutes away!
