Elizabethan house with rich interiors and an important textile collection
This imposing house, set in tranquil grounds, resembles the great Hardwick Hall. In the 19th century Sir Charles Barry created the opulent interiors we see today.
Several rooms display part of an international collection of needlework, lace and costume. The wooded park offers wonderful walks.
Gawthorpe Hall is financed and run in partnership with Lancashire County Council.
