Day Visitors to Hoghton Tower
On a guided tour of one of the finest Renaissance buildings in England you will see the many State Rooms, the Banqueting Hall and the Minstrels’ Gallery. Hear about the history of the house, the family and the many guests who have walked through these same rooms. Venture along underground passages and peer into the dungeons and Tudor Well House of the reputedly third most haunted house in Britain. Visit the permanent Dolls House Collection. Stroll around the walled gardens, courtyards and along the ramparts. Finish your stay with a visit to our tearoom and giftshop.
