Lytham Hall is situated in 78 acres of mature parkland surrounding the Hall. The Hall itself is at the end of a 3/4 mile long driveway with bench seating provided along the drive.
For your own safety please take care, especially on the steeper inclines, uneven flooring and cobbled areas. The wearing of flat, rubber-soled shoes is recommended. People accompanying those in wheelchairs will need to be strong and able pushers.
Please be aware that Lytham Hall grounds has uneven surfaces, deep water and areas that can become slippery. Each visitor is expected to take due care and attention during their visit and take personal responsibility for their actions. Stout footwear for all ages is advised.
Children should be closely supervised in all areas at all times. Dogs should be kept on a lead at the rear of the Hall around the Courtyard, and in the Tea Room Gardens.
The Historic Parkland
The parkland paths are occasionally surfaced with gravel and mulch which can at times be muddy. Please take care and wear sensible footwear. Large areas of the grounds are wheelchair and pushchair accessible.
There are a few steps up to the North entrance door of Lytham Hall, a ramp is available on request to facilitate access for wheelchair users. The ground floor rooms are fully accessible to buggies and wheelchairs; the rooms include the North Entrance Hall, China Room, Main Entrance Hall, Gold Room, Dining Room and Staircase Hall. The first floor and top floor are not accessible. The entry price is therefore reduced to £2.50 per person. Please be mindful of your step in the historic house, due to uneven flag flooring and the use of rugs.
There is a disabled parking area available at the back of the West Wing Tea Room. Follow the signs when driving past the Hall itself.
There is a step up to the West Wing Tea Room door, a ramp is available on request to facilitate access for wheelchair users. The lift services the Tea Room floor and top floor of the West Wing, which is used for conferences, concerts and private bookings.
The visitors' toilets are located in the West Wing by the Cafe, and in the Courtyard at the rear of the Hall. Accessible toilets are located on the ground floor of the West Wing by the cafe, and also in the Courtyard. Baby change facilities are located in the Cafe disabled toilet. There is a step up to the West Wing Tea Room door, a ramp is available on request to facilitate access for wheelchair users.
If travelling by coach, please be aware our entrance gates are 9 1/2 feet wide and can fit most standard coaches through. Drivers may have to push their wing mirrors in to avoid damage to the vehicle. Lytham Hall does not accept any liability.
Dogs are very welcome in the parkland. There are picnic tables outside the tea room for those who fancy an outdoor drink and there are water bowls for dogs. Well behaved dogs are also welcome inside the tea room. Dogs are not allowed inside the historic house, unless they are service dogs. Dog waste bins are located around the parkland and in the car parking areas, please use accordingly. Dogs can be off-lead on the front lawns and through the woodland, but we ask owners to be responsible for their dogs and be mindful of them approaching other dogs and people, especially small children. Dogs MUST be on a lead around the Tea Room, Tea Room lawn and Court Yard areas at all times. Unfortunately we do not allow horses at Lytham Hall in the interests of safety and enjoyment of all our users. Although the Clifton family had a huge passion for horses, the estate and network of paths and trails is not large enough to create safe areas for hacking today.
