Arley is a place of enormous character, charm and interest. Visitors are frequently struck by the warm and intimate atmosphere and the feeling that Arley is a much-cherished family home in the heart of Cheshire making it the perfect backdrop to our event.
The elaborate ceilings & oak panelling, impressive fireplaces, intricate stained glass and beautiful contents are not the only features which make Arley Hall so special. Visitors will be enthralled to enter a piece of living history, which gives an intimate insight into life in the Hall and the history of a family that has cherished Arley as their home for over 550 years.
The present Hall stands on the same site as the first house built by the family in 1469, and is situated at the very heart of the Estate overlooking the famous Gardens and beautifully landscaped Park. Lord Ashbrook, the great great grandson of Rowland Egerton-Warburton, who built the present Arley Hall, grew up in the Hall as a child and spent some time as a young man living there.
Having been lovingly created by the same family over 250 years, Arley Hall’s gardens are a wonderful example of the idea that the best gardens are living, changing works of art.
Outstanding features in the gardens are the renowned double herbaceous, the avenue of giant Ilex columns, Victorian Rootree and the breathtaking array of roses, perennials, and flowering shrubs, and the sheer variety of rhododendrons, azaleas and specimen trees in The Grove.
