Visited Towneley Hall & Park on beautiful spring sunny day and was really impressed. Children’s playgrounds were good and we went for a leisurely walk ground the grounds of the Hall and also visited the Cafe. Would well recommend to everyone.

A place worth visiting. Townley hall is full of such interesting things and you can spend hours walking round the various rooms and is situated in a huge park that is really well kept. There are plenty of car parks, £1-50 for all day parking....More

The cafe is a private business and not run by the hall, I do not think they allow dogs in the cafe,but lots of dog walkers sit outside on the terrace and are welcome.
