What we offer on a school trip
Award winning Leighton Hall is the lived-in house of the famous furniture making Gillow dynasty. Children are invited to unravel the fascinating past of this ancient, Lancashire family. As well as the house and grounds, Leighton has a children’s play area, woodland walk, tree face trail, caterpillar maze, plant conservatory and tea rooms. Birds of prey are flown on open days (weather permitting).
Home to the Gillow Reynolds, Leighton is very much a “lived in” house, brought to life by the enthusiasm of the guides. Tours are informal and entertaining. There are no roped off areas and children are encouraged to sit on the furniture and really get involved.
Perfect for their inquisitive minds, each educational package, opens up the world beyond the classroom window, for your pupils. Packed with cross curricular themes and activities, we’ll guide you through three tailorable visits, with complementary Key Stage 1 and 2 supporting material, already fully risk assessed for you.
Free and easy parking and only 10 min drive from M6 junction 35.
