Adlington Hall and Gardens is in no doubt one of the most spectacular stately homes in the UK. It has been owned by the Legh family for over 700 years and the two most popular areas are The Great Hall and The Hunting Lodge. The internal Courtyard is bathed in sunlight on a fine day and externally the Rose Garden and Laburnum Arch areas are a beautiful place for a quiet moment.

The Great Hall dates back to 1040 when it was built around two oak trees as a Saxon hunting lodge, the hall was completed in 1505 and was the centre from which the house grew. The two original oaks trees are still in place with the roots firmly in the ground and form a spectacular feature within the room and provide support for the 17th Century Organ. The Great Hall offers medieval splendour, rich with vivid murals and beamed ceilings, benefiting from the adjoining Dining Room and it's vistas across the original park land. This area makes for an inspirational meeting place, as delegates will be immersed in the history and elegant architecture of years gone by. It's the perfect place to make decisions and plan projects. The Hall can hold up to 120 theatre style and can be set up in a variety of ways and the Dining Room can hold 20 people boardroom style.
The Hunting Lodge was originally built in 1817 just after the Battle of Waterloo as a Dutch style barn and was first opened as a venue in 1983 with the bar extension taking place three years later in 1986, it has now been recently refurbished and boasts exposed brick walls, high ceilings and the original oak beams, offering a light and airy atmosphere that can accommodate everything from small meetings to a group conference. A spiral staircase takes you from a welcoming reception into the main event area which also has a fully licenced bar for those that require it. This versatile space can accommodate up to 140 theatre style.
