Chorley's Astley Hall receives Travellers' Choice Award
25 August 2023
The historic Astley Hall in Chorley has been awarded the Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice award, meaning that it is in the top 10% of listings on Tripadvisor.
Formerly Certificate of Excellence, the Travelers' Choice recognises businesses that earn consistently great reviews. Winners are determined based on the quality and quantity of traveller reviews and ratings posted on Tripadvisor over a 12-month period, meaning that public opinion helped Astley Hall win the certification.
One of the many Tripadvisor reviews described Astley Hall as "an amazing place" and continued to say "The entrance fee is modest, and the guides are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Lots of interesting items and some particularly impressive ceilings. The hall is set in huge grounds, with a very pleasant cafe and shop. We really enjoyed our visit today, and thought that it was one of the best houses of its type that we've seen. Altogether an excellent day out."
Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, Councillor Peter Wilson said "We are delighted that Astley Hall has received this certification and best of all, it's based on visitor reviews and ratings. We know Astley Hall is special, so we're delighted to know our visitors think so too, which has led to this recognition.
"Over recent years the Hall has benefitted from significant council investment, to preserve it for future generations and to enhance the visitor experience, which visitors are enjoying and recommending to others.
"If you haven't visited Astley Hall and Park, it's well worth a visit for a great day out - from the historic Astley Hall itself to seeing an exhibition in the coach house gallery, or enjoying the fantastic play areas, grabbing a bite to eat, or attending on the of the many events held in the park and much more, there is something for everyone - and please don't forget to leave us a review!"
