First opened as a museum in 1924, Astley Hall, Coach House and Park is a beautiful tourist spot located next to Chorley town centre offering families and friends a great day out. Within the grounds you will find acres of stunning parkland, the breath-taking Grade I historic house, the modernised Coach House which includes Café Ambio, the scenic Walled Garden, an exciting Pets Corner and an array of sports pitches and play areas.
After two years of renovation work, the Hall is now open. See opening hours and admission info.
Astley Hall is currently closed to the public until Spring 2024 to allow our yearly winter cleaning schedule to take place.
Our conservation staff are hard at work making sure the Hall and its collections are properly looked after and ready to be enjoyed by visitors once more when we re-open.
