Closed completely to visitors for the rest of 2015. This is due to major building conservation work to the hall. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and expect the hall will be open fully for 2016.

Gawthorpe Hall is a superb Jacobean historic house, nestled in the shadow of Pendle Hill, east Lancashire. Built between 1600 and 1605 for the Shuttleworth family it had an iconic and important role in the local area.

On a visit you can see the original seventeenth century panelling and plasterwork in the Drawing Room; period Victorian rooms redesigned by sir Charles Barry (architect of Houses of Parliament) showing what life was like for the family in the 1890s and enjoy the splendour of the Long Gallery. The hall also has fabulous furniture, paintings and the Gawthorpe Textile Collection displays on the first floor.

Gawthorpe Hall is also part of Wonderful Things with special events, offers and creative entrance displays telling the story of the money made and money spent in Pennine Lancashire.
