How To Find Us

Despite its rural location, Leighton Hall is very easy to find.
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.

Please note satnavs are 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!
