    Good value for money!
    The house was impressive in itself but the experience was very much enhanced by the interaction with the friendly and knowledgeable guides on hand throughout. We were amazed by the number of rooms open and the lack of velvet ropes - we could wander around the rooms freely and see things close up. Really great value for money, much more so than many historic houses run by a well known national organisation.

    An incredible day!
    I've been to countless stately homes as its a passion of mine, but this was by far my favourite. The guides were not only very knowledgeable about the building but were so empathetic to the people who have lived there, that I felt as though I knew them and their stories. From the shops, grounds, tea room to the Hall itself, the whole experience was worth every penny of the very reasonable £8. What an incredible day!

    A lovely day out and Afternoon Tea at Lillibets.
    We started our visit after a delicious Lillibets Afternoon tea. In a beautiful room, served in china cups etc, with very friendly and helpful staff. As it was Sunday, the traditional afternoon tea menu is slightly different, with warm food too. Delicious. We had the Gold experience, so a glass of prosecco was given as it was a birthday celebration. The meal must be booked well in advance to ensure places. Afterwards, we toured round the Hall itself. Each room had a very knowledgeable room steward to explain what is there to look out for. They also share interesting additional information as all the room stewards are well experienced and knowledgeable. We hope to return again for the Christmas display and floral festival.

    Well worth a visit!
    Lytham Hall is well worth a visit we were impressed with all the wonderfully set out rooms, there was always someone knowledgeable on hand in each room to answer all your questions and also to tell you about the history of the room and the family that had lived there. It was really lovely to be able to wonder around each room freely with no barriers and to look closely at all the wonderful things on display. The cafe is also lovely to visit they have a varied menu that's reasonably priced. If you are walking from Lytham the walk from the gates to the hall takes 15 to 20 minutes but its a very pleasant walk along a gravelled path. I would definitely recommend visiting here!

    Great day out and a great price for entry
    We had a lovely day out here. The hall is amazing and refurbished to a very high standard. The grounds are lovely to stroll around. There is a coffee shop/ cafe which is really good although we only had coffee and a cold drink but the outdoor area to sit was very picturesque with tranquil music playing in the background. The staff in the hall were all amazing and very informative they offered lots of interaction which was very interesting and helpful. The gardens outside are lovely for a picnic which we had on a bench in the shade. We all had a great day ay Lytham Hall and I will definitely be returning. I’ve already told my friends to have a day out here as I know they will love it.

    Amazing Volunteers
    Very interesting stories about the owners over the years culminating in the bankruptcy of the last one which eventually lead to ownership by the present Trust. The enthusiasm of the many volunteers is only exceeded by their extensive knowledge as they tell the stories which make history come to life. There is is a cornucopia of items ,most collected by volunteers, which provide a fascinating background . There are many addition to your visit - café, antiques, garden centre, shop, garden , walks and often exhibitions. Good to look up on web site before visit

    Paul Martin Dinner
    This was the 4th time we've been to hear a speaker at the Hall. Sometimes it's an Afternoon Tea or an evening Dinner. The events are held in a spacious room above the cafe and at tables of 10. Booking ahead is essential as places get booked up quickly. A glass of prosecco on arrival, followed by a 3 course dinner which was good, although service is a little slow. They can cater for vegetarians too. Paul is an interesting and entertaining speaker and explained a lot about his time with the BBC and the Flog It tv programme. I can certainly recommended these events, although I wonder if they could be held in the actual Hall perhaps? It would add more to the atmosphere and for someone like David Harper talking about the Georgians or British Empire it would be perfect.

    Fabulous Venue
    Just been to a 70th Birthday party at Lytham Hall, what a fabulous place. Cannot praise the staff and volunteers highly enough, they were absolutely brilliant. The food and venue was excellent, enjoyed every minute of it, a gem of a place.

    A lovely day out!
    Myself and my boyfriend had the loveliest day visiting Lytham Hall. We've been meaning to go into the Hall itself for a while. It is right on our doorstep and although we've walked the grounds before we've never been inside. However, today we did and it was such a great experience. All of the volunteers were so helpful, informative and a pleasure to talk to. (Shout outs to Beth, Peter, Peta and Emma) We learned loads about the history of the local area and the hall itself and it was a delight to hear all the different things they had to say and tidbits we learned along the way. Highly recommend to everyone visiting the Fylde Coast!

We went today 19th April 2024 on the opening day of the flower show. Having been to this display last year which was absolutely amazing. You could smell the flowers throughout the building and there was an abundace of many different ones. We thought it would be equally as good this year.

We were very disappointed to see that what fresh flowers there were, some looked like they were wilting. There were nowhere near as many fresh flowers as last year. A great deal were silk/paper specimens which we felt cheated with for the £12 admission fee.
If you went last year don't get too excited as you will be very disappointed.

I thought the house was fascinating and really well-preserved. Every room was immaculate. It was a great insight into The Clifton Family.

The staff were very friendly and helpful too.

Highly recommend a visit!

We had afternoon tea at Lilibet's on Thursday 7th March 2024 in Lytham Hall. Super experience - we had to book a few days before, and the event is in the Red Library, with a super log fire. Absolutely marvellous. Just room for about 14 people, so very exclusive! Two lovely waitresses - an endless supply of fresh tea (or coffee), fresh finger sandwiches, a variety of sweets, and afterwards a warm scone each brought to the table, with clotted cream and jam. A very civilised, most enjoyable experience. Very highly recommended. We then had a little walk round the beautiful grounds of the Hall, and bought some lovely large-flowered primulas at the Garden Hub.

Live fairly close by but never visited before. Spending a day with friends and family and thought we'd have a change and seek Lytham Hall out for some fresh air rather than just walking along the sea front as usual. Didn't go into the Hall itself as the aim was to spend time outside but the grounds were pleasant enough to amble around. The small shop/cafe/plant area too was quaint and interesting. However, we were shocked at the animal area. Having read the description on the website about the rescued rabbits and the grand surroundings they now live in, I was looking forward to seeing them living their best life! But I was really disappointed to see how lacklustre and minimal their enclosure was. Even worse were that of the pigs and goats, such tiny pens with no room for exercise or enrichment. The poor goats looked like some kind of tv advert for a charity supporting mistreated animals abroad! And one of the pigs was trying it's best to run around but had so little space to do so, it looked frantic. With all the space available at Lytham Hall there is the potential to make things so different for these animals and it was really sad to see. Definitely put me off staying any longer or visiting again and those I was visiting with agreed.

What a fantastic experience this afternoon tea was. Delicious selection of sandwiches with lovely soft bread. Nice array of warm mini desserts with a proper full size fruited scone, again served warm at the correct time not sitting with the sandwiches to get cold. Really welcoming and attentive service from start to finish. As veterans of afternoon teas all over the U.K this was up there with the very best!! Thank you and see you again.

A must visit for anyone visiting Lytham!
What ever time of year you visit the grounds always look a little different but still beautiful!

Right now the snowdrops are in bloom and it’s so pretty!
A walk around the grounds is always followed by a visit to the cafe and it’s always delicious 😋

Went for Sunday afternoon tea. It was amazing. Loads of food - soup, prawn cocktail, pate, quiche, sandwiches, cakes and scones. All delicious! My only criticism is we paid for champagne afternoon tea and it was NOT champagne! We didn’t complain -we shouldn’t have to point this out and did not want to upset our special occasion!
The venue is perfect for afternoon tea! The grounds are beautiful for a walk afterwards to burn off excess calories!
