Entry is completely free, so we do ask that if you have enjoyed your visit, please pop a few pennies in one of our donation buckets... or why not enjoy Lunch in the Heritage Cafe, or waffles at Dotties?  Samlesbury Hall is a registered charity (no 526052) and every penny spent going straight back into keeping our historic roof on!
