MEET THE WIZARDS - Academy & Meet and Greet
Leighton Hall is very much a lived-in house rather than a stuffy museum, there are no roped-off areas and you won’t find anyone shouting 'don’t touch!' at your children! The Halls history is brought to life by the guides. Each room from the modest chapel to the imposing dining room is still used every day by the Gillow family.
With lots of funny and fascinating tales to reveal, the family’s ancestry means there are plenty of unusual pieces of furniture and paintings to enjoy.
