Author's Review

Anybody that appreciates Fine Arts, Historic Homes, and the beautiful Lancashire countryside, will truly benefit from a visit to Leighton Hall. Not only did I feel that Leighton offers tremendous value for money, but the visitor experience that is to be gained from your visit, really makes this a Top 100 Attraction. With birds of prey demonstrations happening daily (weather permitting), beautiful Victorian gardens, and grand afternoon teas, you can't help but be impressed with your time here. I found the tour to be really interesting, and also one that included some humour. Sometimes tours around historic homes are great just once, but I would definitely enjoy taking this tour again. Another thing I liked about this attraction, was that even though the main tours around Leighton Hall happen between May and September, visitors in groups of 25 or more can pre-book a tour all around year round.
