  • Not a large rambling place but nonetheless well worth a visit. Very knowledgeable guides, good exhibitions. Very interesting. 
  • An extremely lovely and well-preserved Tudor stately home - dating from the 1600s. Part of the National Trust. Features an unbelievable and extensive collection of needlework, lacework and period cost...  more »

  • Nice little Jacobean hall. It is run by Lancashire County Council on behalf of the National Trust. The cafe is pleasant if a tad pricey. Car parking is terrible; there simply isn't enough space and the bays aren't marked, so folk park very selfishly and take up too much space. The grounds make a decent short walk. Children wouldn't find much to do here as there's no playground and the hall is not big. An enjoyable trip overall.
  • Excellent gardens and walks, very nice tea rooms and facilities. Parking is free, but limited. Exhibitions in the hall were interesting, though definitely not engaging for children.
  • A wonderful place to visit. In its own secluded wood you feel transported back in time to the Elizabethan era when the imposing residence was built. During and after the industrial revolution the Padiham area was awash with the 'dark satanic mills' pumping out cotton cloth, so it is appropriate that the Hall now houses one of the finest textile collections in the world. This is onshow to the public and well worth a visit. Maintained now by the National Trust.
  • Nice grounds and walk, but we turned up on a Monday when the Hall was closed.
  • Beautiful house. Sad that no photo's can be taken inside. Its cheap to get in I think more rooms could do with being opened. Focused more on Exhibitions later. The cafe was disapointing the music blaring out Fifties music to point couldnt talk together , Until spoke to lovely lady. Who we thought could do with being serving the public in cafe helpful and with a smile. Friendly, only started her job 4wks ago. The other wonan ponytail dark hair couldnt be bothered to put hersef out.
