Bring the Clifton history to life for students of all ages or create your own wild adventures in the parkland of Lytham Hall to discover a secret world of dens, forest craft and minibeast safaris. The options are endless.
School groups are (by prior arrangement) particularly welcome to visit the Hall. Reduced school child discount available.
Our educational tours of Lytham Hall give an insight into its early origins in the 12th century as a priory for exiled monks as well as the history and lifestyle of the colourful Clifton family who acquired the Hall and park after the Dissolution of the Monasteries. The tours also introduce children and young people to the other usages made of the Hall down the centuries (for example as a hospital for wounded Soldiers during WWII). On the estate are also a number of grade II listed buildings including an 850 roost Dovecote; stable block; and Gatehouse.
The 78 acres of mature grounds surrounding the Hall are registered with the English Heritage as a park.
Lytham Town Trust and Heritage Trust for the North West are jointly in the process of developing an exciting restoration project of the John
Carr Hall, Jacobean Courtyard and the South Prospect Garden. This work is partly funded by the Heritage Lottery and as part of the Lytham
Hall experience, visitors are invited to share in the progress being made – school groups can be part of the restoration of this wonderful
House and Park to its former glory.
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.
