Set within acres of tranquil and idyllic parkland is Walton Hall and Gardens – the former home of Lord and Lady Daresbury. Lovingly restored and refurbished, the Elizabethan hall boasts unique antique furniture, Victorian paintings and high gilded ceilings.

There’s also the restored glasshouses which are filled with botanical displays and the Children's Zoo, which is free to enter and home to a range of wildlife.

Whether you’re visiting the zoo, taking a resident alpaca for a walk, exploring the beautifully maintained gardens, playing a round of adventure golf or a full 18 holes at Walton Hall Golf Course, or tackling the high ropes course, there really is something for the whole family to enjoy.

After a day of excitement, you can relax with a coffee in the Heritage Café, which offers a range of fresh, delicious and locally sourced food and deli products. It’s the perfect place to unwind – and dogs are welcome too! 

Walton is home to the annual Disability Awareness Day – the world's largest 'not for profit', voluntary-led disability exhibition. It’s held every year in a huge, tented village within the grounds and attracts over 22,000 visits with over 200 exhibitors.

Walton Hall and Gardens is also one of Cheshire’s premier destinations and a picture-perfect setting for weddings – it’s the perfect place to say ‘I do’. Whether you choose a small intimate gathering or want to throw a huge party no one will forget, the team will adapt to your requirements and help you to make those very special memories.

Set within acres of tranquil and idyllic parkland, Walton Hall and Gardens is Warrington’s jewel in the crown. Whether you’re visiting the children’s zoo and taking a resident alpaca for a walk, exploring the beautifully maintained gardens, playing a round of adventure golf or relaxing with a coffee in the Heritage Café, It’s the ideal family destination with something for everyone.
