Overview

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.

I visited Astley to see the re-vamped Chorley Pals 100 Exhibition. I was not disappointed as they have done a wonderful job with the displays and the recreated trench. The old Hall is magnificent with its old rooms and furniture. The guides offer great insight,...More

Went for a walk around the park. Lovely walk in woods as well as grassland with space to run. River Chor runs through the woods with little bridges to cross. One of the bridges was broken and two lovely volunteers directed us around.

Great (mainly) Jacobean house with wonderful 17c ceilings, good furniture and very nice atmosphere. The Long gallery on the top floor is worth a visit too.
