About Us

Investigate one of Chesters most haunted buildings.

Stanley Palace was built in 1591 on the site of the previous Black (Dominican) Friary. It was made as the town house for Sir Peter Warburton, a neighbourhood legal counsellor and Member of Parliament. When he passed on in 1621 the house was acquired by his little girl.

She married Sir Thomas Stanley who gave his name to the house. After the Civil Wars James Stanley (The seventh Earl) was held collared at the house, and transported to Bolton for execution. Some portion of the house was obliterated and the south west wing was reconstructed in the mid eighteenth century.

The Palace at that point stopped to be a manor house and by the mid nineteenth century it had been partitioned into condos and its condition was weakening. It was purchased by the Chester in 1865 and during the 1870s housed a young men's school.

The structure was sold to the fifteenth Earl of Derby in 1889. In the mid 1920s the structure contained "a gallery of 1,000 objects". The house was given to Chester Corporation in 1928. The north wing was reconstructed in 1935.
