A brief history

From visits by historical figures to secret spy-holes in the walls, Arley Hall has seen it all. Lord Ashbrook and his family have opened the doors to this spectacular stately home so that you and your guests can be a part of the history too. There is no-where more perfect to make memories that will last for a lifetime.

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to be able to work in such a beautiful venue and we look forward to working with you to ensure that you make the most of your time at Arley. Our team of specialists will be on hand with you every step of the way


Meet the team

We're the happiest team in the North West - it's a bold claim but it's true!  We love what we do and we love where we do it. Why not visit us and see for yourself - you'll be 'happy' you did!

Paul Thomas

General Manager

No two events are the same here at Arley. Every person who engages in planning an event with us has their own personality and vision and this is something that we reall try to bring to life. We enjoy the challenges that come with running events and are constantly looking to exceed expectations.

Kerri Lytton

Events Designer

My job is so varied. From hog-roasts for a large private party to an intimate wedding celebration in the Gardens there are so many different ways for our clients to enjoy Arley. My favourite part of my role is also the one I dislike the most - I love the end of an event when our clients are so happy with how their event went but I hate saying good-bye!

Neil Faux

Head Chef

Our Heritage Portfolio chef's mantra is to 'be brave'. This includes the flavours that we work with, the techniques that we use for cooking and the dishes that we produce. I constantly challenge myself to think of new and interesting ways to create and present our menus and our clients really appreciate it. I always try to throw a 'wild card' dish into the menu options to keep things lively!
