Walton Hall and Gardens

Walton Hall and Gardens welcomes you to Warrington’s premier destination for nearly three generations. Set within acres of tranquil and idyllic parkland, Walton Hall is the former home of Lord and Lady Daresbury, often referred to by Lady Daresbury as the ‘Kew Gardens of the North’.

Our Hall, lovingly restored and refurbished, boasts unique antique furniture, Victorian paintings, an oak panelled hall, grand staircase and high-gilded ceilings, making it perfect for weddings, family celebrations, conferences and more.
