Welcome to Samlesbury Hall, one of the stunning stately homes of Lancashire, a haven for history lovers, where the past meets the present - a fantastic, free family day out. What will you discover?

Please make sure to always visit our opening times before you travel.

The much needed income for our charity (526052) comes in as a result of selling our own food and drink. Therefore we do not allow food and drink to be brought in and eaten, which includes picnicking in the grounds.

“Visited today for the first time with my Mother and my daughter. We had a superb lunch in the restaurant followed by a leisurely stroll around the house and grounds. An excellent day. Will certainly recommend!” More »
