When Event
09/01/19 to 21/12/19
Samlesbury Hall

Built in 1325, Samlesbury Hall is steeped in fascinating history, retaining its original typical black and white exterior. Enjoy intrigue, witchcraft and centuries of enthralling times gone by throughout their archive rooms. Saved from demolition in the 1920s by six local businessmen, it remains in the care of the Charitable Trust today with the aim of maintaining and keeping open for visitors to enjoy.

From the Tudor priest holes to the Victorian kitchen, the Hall has history from (and for) every age. With the turbulent tales of its Catholic families, witches and the haunting of Lady Dorothy (and other ghost stories), a captivating insight into life from the early 14th to the 21st century is all waiting to be discovered.

The Hall also boasts an award-winning restaurant

Free Admission Free

Admission to the Hall and Ground is free, except on event days when we charge a small admission fee to include the extra entertainment on offer.
