The Hall offers elaborate ceilings & oak panelling, impressive fireplaces, intricate stained glass and beautiful contents which make Arley Hall so special and gives you 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 Hall tour lasts for approx 1 1/4 hours.
Arley Group Visit – The Gardens
The Gardens, amongst the finest in Britain and Europe, have been created over the last 250 years by successive generations of the same family. The garden’s best known feature is its Herbaceous Border which was probably the first border of its kind planted in England, this along with the unique Quercus Ilex Columns, Pleached Lime Avenue of trees and the furlong walk make this simply the most amazing and interesting garden. An escorted Garden Tour takes around 1 1/2 hours (must be pre-booked – fee applicable).

The Gardener’s Kitchen offers an Arley group visit food using local ingredients and welcomes groups for coffees, lunches or afternoon teas and there is also a delightful shop to enjoy browsing in.

Thank you so much to you and your staff at Arley Hall for making our visit today a success. We were all impressed with the guide whose knowledge of the house and caring manner towards individual party members impressed us all.
Winstanley & Highfield TG
Just to say, ‘Thank you’ to everyone at Arley Hall for making our visit so enjoyable. The Hall was lovely and we all found it very difficult to choose which Christmas Tree to vote for!
Particular thanks to Ashley and the team in the restaurant. The food was delicious, the service excellent and all the staff were helpful, pleasant and good humoured.
All in all an excellent trip.
